This petite Choisya is perfect for the smaller garden or container growing. Choisya is an evergreen low-maintenance shrub with glossy, bright green leaves and white starry flowers in May to June which are sweetly fragrant. It tolerates difficult situations including coastal gardens. Choisya ‘Little Bee’ has especially fine, long leaves and small compact growth. Grow it on a patio near a door or seating area where you can enjoy its citrus scent during the summer as well as evergreen foliage throughout the year. Height and Spread: 50cm (20”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant Mexican Orange Blossom in any well drained soil in full sun, with shelter from strong winds. Partial shade is tolerated but foliage will be less golden in this situation. Alternatively grow Choisya in patio containers filled with loam-based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until Choisya plants are well established. Mexican Orange Blossom requires little attention, but benefits from a trim each year to keep it neat and tidy. After flowering, trim or lightly cut back shoots to a healthy pair of buds. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant in spring.
