Plant Biography

This exciting new hybrid was raised by propagator Peter Moore at Longstock Park Nursery by crossing the species Choisya dumosa with his earlier hybrid Choisya x dewitteana ‘Aztec Pearl’.

In the wild, Choisya grow native to Mexico and the surrounding regions. They are useful to the wildlife gardener, as the abundant flowers are a great pollen source for bees.
