Mexican orange blossom (Choisya ternata 'Sundance')
CHOY-zee-ah ter-NAY-tah
Genus:  Choisya
'Sundance' Mexican orange blossom is an evergreen, compact shrub with white, fragrant flowers borne in late spring, and again in late summer and autumn. Groups of three little leaflets give the young yellow-green foliage a pleasing pattern, while the waxy, glossy texture adds a luminous quality.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Use in a mixed border, as a foundation plant, or as a specimen in a container. Foliage is great for flower arrangements, especially if fall-harvested.
Care:  Holds its color best in morning sun. Prefers well-drained, fertile soil. Fertilize with well-rotted manure or compost at planting time and top-dress in spring.
Propagation:  Root semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
Problems:  Infrequent. Aphids occasionally.
