Choisya ternata, Mock Orange

A lovely, fast growing evergreen shrub that is as versatile as it is charming.

Choisya ternata has small, bright green, rounded leaves that give the hardy shrub a distinctly soft appearance. Quick growing, it can reach a size of 2m by 2m, but loves a good hair cut to keep it to your desired size. It’s great for filling in between deciduous trees to give a backdrop with year round appeal, and works equally well as a pot plant.

In summer, masses of white flowers adorn the branches, filling the air with it’s sweet, orange blossom perfume.

Happy in full sun or part shade, this hardy evergreen it sure to be a winner in your garden!
