An evergreen shrub with slender, glossy, dark green leaves, and clusters of fragrant, pink-tinged white flowers in late spring, 'Aztec Pearl' is a more compact alternative to the ubiquitous Choisya ternata. It's ideal for the back or middle of a mixed border, and in hot summers, and in full sun, may flower twice without pruning. It can also be grown in partial shade as an attractive foliage plant. Although it's fully hardy, the leaves may be damaged by exposure to strong winds or frost.Garden care:Prune established plants in spring immediately after flowering, removing 25-30cm (10-12in) of the flowered stems. This encourages a second flush of flowers in late-summer and autumn. At the same time, remove any frost-damaged stems to the base.
