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

    This relative of the popular Choisya ternata has cheerful, bright yellow, glossy young evergreen foliage and produces clusters of white flowers in late spring. This dome-shaped shrub is ideal for a mixed or shrub border in light shade, where the leaves become a more subtle yellow-green.

  • Garden care: Prune established plants in spring immediately after flowering, removing 25-30cm (10-12in) 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.
