Hardiness Zone Map


Valued for its fragrant flowers and aromatic, evergreen foliage, this elegant small shrub is a hybrid bred to life by Peter Moore, Hillier’s propagator. The white blossoms burst forth in profuse clusters from pink buds. Almost almond in scent, they are hosted terminally on slender, glossy and trifoliate dark green leaflets.

Resistant to deer, ‘Aztec Pearl’s handsome rounded visage will form a close-knit and finely textured low screen or informal blooming hedge in your garden.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 4' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 8.

<i>Choisya</i> x <i>dewitteana</i> ‘Limo’

Sharing the same Choisya arizonica and Choisya ternata lineage plus breeder (gifted British horticulturist Peter Moore) as ‘Aztec Pearl’, this dazzling evergreen cultivar is similar to its green-leafed relation save for its lambent gold-dusted foliage. Large citrus-scented clusters of terminal white blooms decorate the polished, palmately divided leathery leaves that emit a strong aroma. Bushy, rounded and generally pest-free, ‘Limo’s tailored mien savors dappled light and free-draining locations plus serves as a brilliant counterpoint against dark greenery.

Blooms March–May

Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.

Zone 7b.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
