Choisya ternata, commonly known as Mexican orange blossom, is an evergreen shrub with aromatic foliage and an abundance of fragrant flowers. It is a popular choice for gardening enthusiasts in the Irish climate due to its adaptability and beauty.

Height/Spread: Choisya ternata typically reaches a height of 6-8 feet (1.8-2.4 meters) with a spread of 6-8 feet as well. Its compact and rounded form makes it suitable for various garden sizes and landscaping purposes.

Position: This shrub thrives in full sun to partial shade, making it well-suited for the Irish climate. It can tolerate a range of light conditions, although it may produce fewer flowers in shadier spots. In wind-exposed areas, providing some protection is beneficial for optimal growth.

Soil: Choisya ternata prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. It is adaptable to different soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. In the Irish climate, ensuring good soil drainage is essential to prevent waterlogging.

Flowering Season: The Mexican orange blossom delights with its fragrant white flowers, which typically bloom in late spring and continue sporadically throughout summer. These blossoms attract pollinators, adding life and color to Irish gardens during the warmer months.

Uses: Choisya ternata offers a range of uses in Irish gardens. It works well as a hedge, screen, or specimen plant, providing privacy and structure. The aromatic foliage and fragrant flowers make it an excellent choice for sensory gardens or as a focal point in mixed borders. Additionally, its evergreen nature ensures year-round interest and beauty in the Irish climate.
