Commonly known as Mexican orange, Choisya ternata is an aromatic small evergreen shrub that has glossy green leaves with white fragrant flowers in spring.


Prefers a full sun position but can tolerate part shade, likes a well-draining soil. Fertilise in spring and apply mulch. Prune after flowering to maintain dense growth, can be cut back quite hard. Allow soil to dry between watering.
