Project Description

Choisya ‘Apple Blossom’

  • A stunning new hybrid with delicate fine foliage
  • Dark green leaves
  • A profusion of scented pink and white flowers in spring
  • Any well drained soils, not suitable for very exposed situations
  • Possibly better in partial shade
  • Hardy to -18°C in my garden, young plants will require fleece protection for the first year or so

 

Choisya is often referred to as Mexican Orange Blossom due to the pure white flowers, however Choisya ‘Apple Blossom’ is the first bi-coloured Choisya with stunning pink and white flowers.

In spring masses of pink buds appear which open into white flowers. The soft shades of pink and white will give a rustic, romantic feel to any garden. C. ‘Apple Blossom’ has a lovely fragrance which attracts butterflies and bees.

The dark green leaves are retained throughout the year and the cultivar has a finer leaves than either C. ‘Aztec Pearl’ or C. ‘White Dazzler’, giving the plants a more delicate appearance. The overall compact shape makes it ideal for a smaller garden.

 

Choisya Apple Blossom updates 2016

Unfortunately it may take a year or two for established plants to flower.

The plant in my garden produced so many flowers there was very little propagation material, so initially plants were grafted and under glass suitable material was produced to rise cuttings or use for tissue culture.

Plants in Garden Centres still look attractive with the very fine leaves, completely different to any other Choisya currently on the market.
