Most gardeners appreciate plants that look good but how much more satisfying when said plants have other attributes such as attracting beneficial insects and pollinators, pleasing fragrances, or durability? 'Aztec Pearl' choisya, sometimes known as Mexican Orange 'Aztec Pearl,' has so much going for it, it's hard to imagine why we wouldn't want to include one in the garden. An evergreen shrub with narrow palmate leaves, it produces delicate white flowers in the late spring and again in the fall that have a lovely citrusy fragrance. It handles pruning well that encourages even denser growth and more blooms, and can be used as a foundation plant or even a hedge. A moderate grower, 'Aztec Pearl' choisya may stand at five feet tall and wide in almost as many years, though it can reach eight feet tall and wide if left to its own devices. Drought tolerant once established, this choisya is a good candidate for xeriscapes and coastal gardens or conversely, large container planters.
