Buy Choisya ternata Apple Blossom ('Pmoore09') (PBR) Mexican orange blossom: New - with bicoloured flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May and often again in August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a fab new choisya, and the first of its kind to have bicoloured, pink and white flowers. Like its close cousins, it retains its leaves throughout the year, but these are much finer than many of the others, which gives the plant a more delicate appearance. The flowers appear in mid- to late spring, emerging pink from deeper pink buds, but as they mature, the colour fades to white. This often produces a two-tone effect on the flower cluster. It's overall shape is compact too, with quite an upright silhouette, so perfect for pots or smaller gardens.

  • Garden care: Prune established plants in late spring or early summer (immediately after flowering), removing 25-30cm of the flowered stems. This encourages a second flush of flowers in late-summer and autumn. At the same time remove any frost-damaged stems to the base.

Too small


I can't say that the plant is beautiful or going to earn its space in a border until it isn't large enough to plant out, probably in a couple of years time!

Great plant!


Beautiful plant, lovely scent




Hopes yet to be fulfilled


Planted in a border in full sun. It arrived very tiny and hasn't grown very much. It produced one little flower last autumn so I haven't been able to evaluate it in any meaningful way.

Is this scented like the Aztec pearl?


Hello, The flowers of this choisya do have a perfume which is similar to may blossom. If scent is particularly important to you though, then I would recommend opting for 'White Dazzler', which probably has the strongest scent - please click on the link below to go straight to it.


Low maintenance plants for a sunny garden

We all want a lovely garden but sometimes we are too busy with work and family, or we simply don’t have the inclination to garden incessantly, so the trick is to choose low maintenance plants such as easy shrubs and then to underplant them with ground cov
