Choisya ternata GREENFINGERS 'LISSFING'

A choisya with an unusual robust habit, large and abundant flowers gradually changing from pink to white

GREENFINGERS 'Lissfing' is an outstanding variety with an unusual dense habit and abundant flowers. The plant is well-structured with robust branches; the internodes, shorter than in other Choisya, give it a more compact silhouette, with denser foliage. In spring, its abundant, pleasantly fragrant flowers are particularly striking, combining candy pink buds with pure white open blooms. In good weather conditions, this variety can flower again in autumn. Its evergreen foliage has an attractive dark-green tinge. The flowers of GREENFINGERS 'Lissfing' are larger than those of traditional Choisya varieties. It is a hardy plant that can be grown in sun or part shade. Suitable for all fertile soils, it can reach 2 m x 2 m after five years.

This new variety is a hybrid between Choisya ternata and arizonica. GREENFINGERS 'LISSFING' is a result from the hybridisation work led by Peter Catt from Liss Forest Nursery. It is the newest addition to the range that already includes the outstanding varieties: Choisya SCENTED GEM 'LISSBRID' and Choisya GOLD STAR 'LISSTAR'
