The Choisya ternata is a rounded, medium-sized bushy evergreen shrub, with dark, glossy green leaves divided into three broad leaflets. Members of the genus are commonly known as Mexican orange or mock orange due to the similarity of their flowers with those of the closely related orange, both in shape and scent. Flowers are pure white, scented, often appearing fitfully into winter.

Plant Care

You can prune most evergreen shrubs just before growth starts in mid-spring, after any risk of frost has passed. Pruning at this time will avoid frost damage to new shoots, and any pruning scars will be concealed by new growth.
