After I raised Choisya ‘Aztec Pearl’, the next challenge was to try and create a golden form with narrow leaves. Over the next 10 years, in fact every May, flowers were prepared on Choisya Sundance to receive the pollen from Choisya arizonica.
Every year all the seedlings were rejected. I was just about to give up, when finally a small narrow gold leaf appeared in a plug tray. The seedling was potted up into a 7cm pot and by the autumn it was a small bushy plant. Then through the winter of 1994-5 the original leaves turned lime green but with the lengthening and warmer days of spring, strong shoots of gold opened to the sun.
