Choisya ternata 'Lich' was discovered in 1978 by UK nurseryman Peter Catt as a variegated branch sport on the Mexican native Choisya ternata, and eventually isolated to an all gold leaf. Introduced commercially in 1986 at the famed Chelsea Garden show, Choisya 'Lich' (marketed as Sundance) is now a mainstay in warm temperate gardens around the world. The bright gold evergreen finger-like foliage adorns this wonderful 4' tall x 4' wide open shrub. In late spring, the plants are topped with terminal clusters of fragrant white flowers. A site with morning sun and good drainage and dry soils are best for long life.
