Including Choisya ‘Aztec Pearl’, and Choisya x dewitteana ‘Limo’
Valued for its fragrant flowers and aromatic, evergreen foliage, this elegant small shrub is a hybrid bred to life by Peter Moore, Hillier’s propagator. The white blossoms burst forth in profuse clusters from pink buds. Almost almond in scent, they are hosted terminally on slender, glossy and
trifoliate dark green leaflets.
Resistant to deer, ‘Aztec Pearl’s handsome rounded visage will form a close-knit and finely textured low screen or informal blooming hedge in your garden.
Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
Choisya ‘Aztec Pearl’ (S-0562)
Add to Cart
Goldfingers Mexican Orange
Sharing the same Choisya arizonica and Choisya ternata
lineage plus breeder (gifted British horticulturalist Peter Moore) as ‘Aztec Pearl’, this dazzling evergreen cultivar is similar to its green-leafed relation save for its lambent gold dusted foliage. Large citrus-scented clusters of terminal white blooms decorate the polished palmately divided leathery leaves that emit a strong aroma. Bushy, rounded and generally pest-free, ‘Limo’s handsome mien serves as a brilliant counterpoint against dark greenery, plus savors dappled light and free draining locations.
Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide. 7b
Choisya x dewitteana ‘Limo’ (S-0790)

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
