Choisya ternata - Mexican Orange Blossom

29,95€ Tax included

In Winter a delay in delivery may appear because of night temperature! The weight of the plant in kg corresponds with the capacity of the pot in liter.

The white flowers of the Mexican Orange (Choisya ternata) smell like the flowers of a lemon tree and also its look and structure is the same- both plants belong to the same plant family. In spring, the flowers appear in clusters above the leaves, almost covering them completely. The leaf of these compact but small- growing evergreens is three-part compound. Young leaves are bright green, older leaves glossy dark green and smell aromatically when broken or rubbed between the fingers. In pots it usually does not grow higher than 1 m with same width. Planted in the garden they can reach 1.5 m. In any case they prefer acidic substrate and fertilizer (e.g. fertiliser for rhododendron) and a consistent water supply without water logging. Due to its fragrance, the Mexican Orange is a good companion for Citrus plants as pot plant or in a greenhouse. The variety ‘Aztek Pearl’ has distinctly slimmer leaves but is as rich in flowers and fragrance as the basic variety.
