Choisya ternata, commonly known as the Mexican Orange Blossom, is a captivating evergreen shrub that offers a multitude of sensory delights. With its aromatic, glossy, medium-green leaves composed of 3 leaflets, this shrub is a feast for the eyes. But it's not just a visual spectacle; the leaves release a mild fragrance reminiscent of basil when crushed. From late spring to early summer, the plant bursts into a profusion of star-shaped, pure white flowers that are rich in nectar and adored by bees and butterflies. These flowers also emit a divine scent similar to orange blossoms. Native to the southwestern U.S. and Mexico, the Choisya ternata is a hardy plant that thrives in well-drained soils and is tolerant of dry periods and moderate frost. It grows in a rounded shape, reaching up to 1.5m in height and width, and requires low maintenance. This versatile shrub is perfect for various garden styles and uses, including mixed plantings, borders, and outdoor living areas.
