Product Description

A real gem of a shrub, for glorious golden-yellow cheerfulness in your garden and being evergreen, it keeps its lovely foliage colour all year round.

A low-maintenance, drought-resistant and slow-growing hardy shrub, 'Sundance' forms a dome of glossy, bright yellow-green foliage and in spring produces small clusters of white, star-shaped flowers that have a delightful citrus-like fragrance hence its common name of 'Mexican Orange Blossom'.

Use it as a specimen plant on its own or in the middle or back of a mixed border where it will contrast with darker foliage of other hardy perennials. It is an ideal choice for complementing shades of lavender and blue. Alternatively, place it in a container on your patio, where it will form an attractive rounded clump of golden leaves.

Fully deserving of its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot ready for planting out or potting up, you can expect your Choisya 'Sundance' to grow to 1.5 x 1.5m in 10 years.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Choisya ternata 'Sundance' can be grown in full sun, but opt for an area of light or dappled shade to ensure the leaves retain the best of their colour.


 

Care Guide

  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring, but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.
  • Plants will thrive in sun although for best results, plant Choisya 'Sundance' in part-shade in fertile, well-drained soil.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the rootball. Sprinkle in a handful of blood, fish and bone and work into the ground. If your soil is heavy, add plenty of well-rotted compost to the area and dig it in well.
  • Place the plant into the hole, backfilling so that it is at the same depth as it was in the pot. Fill around the rootball and firm the soil down gently but firmly.
  • Water well, and then regularly and deeply until established.
  • Prune established plants in summer, immediately after flowering, to maintain a compact and bushy shape and also to encourage a second flush of flowers in late summer and autumn.
