Choisya

     


Choisya ‘Aztec Pearl’  full sun

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.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Choisya x dewitteana ‘Limo’  full sun  partial shade  new plant
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.

Blooms March–May

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide. Zone 7b.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
