A new form of 'Mexican Orange Blossom' raised by ex-Hillier (Hillier Nurseries) propagator Peter Moore from a cross between Choisya 'Aztec Pearl', which Peter first raised in 1984, and Choisya 'Sundance'. The bright yellow foliage is evergreen and aromatic. Scented white flowers are produced in May and often again in September.
