Choisya ternata Hedge Plants Description
Choisya ternata is recognised for its beautiful, star-shaped white flowers that blossom in mature plants during May. Choisya ternata isn't shy of producing an abundance of flowers, transforming your garden into something more spectacular and inviting. Sometimes, Mexican Orange Blossom can produce a second flush of flowers in late summer/autumn if the stems are cut back by about 20/30cm after flowering in May. For the rest of the year, the glossy dark green, evergreen foliage is beautiful.
Choisya ternata flowers and thrives in a full sun position although it will tolerate partial or light shade. If placed in a semi-shaded position, the plant may not flower as prolifically as in full sun. Ideally plant in a sheltered spot in well-drained moist soil. Mexican Orange Blossom will grow in most soil types as long as they don't become too wet or too dry for a sustained period of time.
Aside from the stunning white flowers, another variety of Mexican Orange produces gorgeous golden-coloured, star-shaped flowers.Choisya ternata 'Sundance (Golden Mexican Orange Blossom) is available to buy from Hedges Direct. Both varieties of Mexican Orange Blossom look attractive mixed together or planted alone.

Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Mexican Orange Blossom or Choisya Ternata requires little in the way of pruning, although stripping out older dead wood and weak shoots around June will help promote strong new growth. Shorten stems by 10-12in after flowere to encourage 2nd flush.
