Choisya ternata is a broadleaf evergreen shrub, native to southern North America, that produces attractive and fragrant white flowers. The palm-shaped leaves have three leaflets, and they produce a pleasant scent when crushed. White star-shaped flowers appear in three- to six-inch-long corymbs, mostly in the spring and early summer, and sometimes sporadically through the summer and into fall. The orange-scented flowers turn into a fruit that is neither showy nor edible composed of a leathery capsule with two to six sections.
Prefers full sun/partial shade
