Choisya 'Goldfingers' Overview

Choisya × dewitteana 'Goldfingers' is a bushy but compact evergreen shrub that is native to the highlands of Mexico. It produces narrowly dissected, palm-shaped yellow leaves that will be brighter if it gets lots of sun. The flowers are white, star-shaped and born in clusters in spring and early summer, then again in autumn. They are orange scented. Hence Choisya often being referred to as Mexican Orange Blossom. Needing a sheltered, sunny position and well-drained soil, Choisya 'Gold Fingers' can be used just about anywhere in a garden that needs a bright and attractive shrub. It is suitable for coastal conditions and can be grown in a large container. It is also useful for covering banks and slopes. Feed regularly in growing season to maximise growth and enhance foliage colour, and tidy up any straggly foliage after flowering. Choisya 'Goldfingers' is the preferred selling name for Choisya × dewitteana 'Limo' and is protected under Plant Breeders' Rights. These provide the breeders of new plants exclusive control over the plant material for a set amount of time.
