Gold Star is a new variety of Choisya that has been selected for its beautiful luminous golden-yellow foliage which retains its sheen throughout the year. An additional attraction is its resistance to direct sunlight. The large, fine and elongated folicles bring an extra touch of elegance. It's a shrub with a rounded habit and generous vegetation thanks to its ready branching and the short distance between nodes. It grows rapidly, reaching 2 to 3 m in height.
The Choisya, also known as Mexican Orange Tree, are reputed for their exquisitely orange-perfumed flowers. Tiny white blooms spread in corymbs in spring with a second flowering in the autumn.
The leaves of Choisya Gold Star will enliven your garden and brighten shady corners. It's equally fascinating to juggle with contrasts by associating it with other shrubs and perennials that have dark green, purple or black leaves.
