Choisya Aztec Gold, or Mexican Orange Blossom ‘Aztec Gold’, is an attractive, bushy, free-flowering, evergreen shrub with highly decorative, aromatic, palmate, golden leaves that turn lime-green in winter. The clusters of lovely, sweetly scented, star-shaped, creamy-white flowers emerge in April and May, with a second flush in September and October. Choisya Aztec Gold is very easy to grow. It thrives in moist, well-drained soils of almost any kind, in full sun or part shade. It has shallow roots so drainage is crucial for its successful growth. Low maintenance, requires very little pruning mostly to enable autumn flowering. It’s resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Generally, disease-free. Choisya Aztec Gold is a very decorative shrub, perfect as a specimen plant, great for flower beds and borders, banks and slopes, and wall-side borders. Suitable for low screens and hedges, and for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
