  • £29.99 (ex VAT)

Choisya ternata 'Sundance' is a popular evergreen shrub with cheerful yellow, oval foliage year round. In April-May and then often again in August – September the Mexican orange blossom produces a smothering of single, white flowers which attract all sorts of wildlife, such as bees. Choisya 'Sundance' has a delightful warm, sweet, citrus scent year round and so is ideal planted next to paths or seating areas where it can be thoroughly enjoyed.

Also known as Mexican Orange Blossom, this evergreen shrub will grow to 2.5 x 2.5 meters in 20 years. It grows well in most well-drained soils and prefer full sun, however it is often seen thriving in heavily shaded, north facing positions. Choisya ternata 'Sundance' is a lovely bright shrub that will add a splash of colour and fragrance to the garden, year round.

Planting Advice for Choisya ternata Sundance

Pot grown Choisya ternata 'Sundance' can be planted at any time of the year. Choose a well drained site and dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and approximately 2x as wide. To help it establish more effectively, we advise applying Mycorrhizal Fungi root grow in the hole.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently.

Aftercare Advice for Choisya ternata Sundance

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

All trees are carefully packed by our experienced team and most are delivered within a week of placing the order (please allow up to 12 working days during busy periods). There's no need to be in to receive your order and you can request where it is left via the checkout.

There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height) because we group orders together for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers to notify them of the delivery date.

Trees on pre-order are still growing and an estimate of when they will be ready is given on the basket page. Orders will be despatched when all trees are ready.

Gift trees and those required by a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre, so please make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system. Take care to buy a true multi-stem like all ours and not those that are 3 saplings in a pot to cheaply imitate them.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Clump: Several plants in one pot that can give the appearance of a multi stemmed and very bushy tree.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branches of the crown). Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height:

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
Extra Heavy Standard 14-16cm girth approximately 4.0-6m in height
