Choisya 'Aztec Gold'

Hillier Nurseries (UK) introduces a new cultivar of Mexican orange blossom Choisya. Nurseryman Alan Postill has bred a golden form of this popular evergreen shrub. Choisya ‘Aztec Gold’ is has golden, aromatic leaves. The leaflets are not only beautiful but strong too – waxy and more resistant to winter damage than many other golden-leaved cultivars.
The cultivar ‘Aztec Gold’ flowers in spring and early summer and then produces another flush of white flowers in autumn. Its almond-scented flowers are a magnet to bees and butterflies making it a great garden plant to encourage wildlife into gardens.
‘Atzec Gold’ produces a neat habit, reaching 1.2m (4ft) in height and spread. It looks effective all year, whether in full bloom or showing off its golden leaves in winter.
