In 1989 English breeder Peter Moore introduced a fantastic and hardy novelty among evergreen and exotic looking plants named Aztec Pearl choisya. It has been a huge success so far, no wonder he is coming up with a new and improved variety called WHITE DAZZLER. It dazzled the comitee of KVBC – Dutch Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society which awarded it a gold medal in 2015.

WHITE DAZZLER produces masses of simple, star-shaped, pure white, and very fragrant flowers with yellow stamens in the centre. Their perfume is very similar to orange flowers hence its name Mexican orange or Mexican blossom. The leaves are notably narrower than those of Aztec Pearl, evergreen, soft green as they emerge and dark green when mature, divided into 3-5 linear, narrow leaflets, and release a tempting spicy scent when crushed, yet please do not consume them.

Grow choisya the same way as a sun loving rhododendron. It has shallow and delicate root system which must never stand in wet ground. Drainage is crucial for its happy life, and so is acid, fertile soil for its healthy look. We highly recommend using mycorrhiza that will help the plant establish sooner and provide enough nutrients. As it flowers from mid spring (on last year’s wood) pruning of any kind should happen immediately after flowering in summer but is not needed as it forms a neat and bushy plant on its own. This variety is rated even hardier than Aztec Pearl which has survived -24°C without any protection.
