Product Description


Citrus aurantium, commonly known as bitter orange, is a citrus tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. The variegated variety of Citrus aurantium is characterized by its striking foliage. Here's a description:

Foliage: The leaves of the variegated Citrus aurantium are its most distinctive feature. They exhibit a beautiful variegation pattern, typically with shades of green, cream, and sometimes even pink. The variegation can be irregular, creating a visually appealing contrast.

Size: Like other varieties of Citrus aurantium, the variegated form can grow into a small to medium-sized tree, reaching heights of around 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters) when mature.

Flowers: In spring, the tree produces highly fragrant white flowers with a hint of orange blossom aroma. These flowers are not only ornamental but also attract pollinators like bees and butterflies to the garden.

Fruit: The bitter orange tree bears small, round fruits that are indeed bitter and typically not consumed fresh like sweeter citrus varieties. However, they are sometimes used in culinary applications, such as making marmalades or flavoring liqueurs.

Growing Conditions: Citrus aurantium variegated thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is relatively cold-hardy compared to other citrus species, but it still prefers warm climates and protection from frost. Regular watering and occasional fertilization can promote healthy growth.

Landscape Use: The variegated form of Citrus aurantium is prized for its ornamental value, adding a pop of color and texture to gardens and landscapes. It can be grown in containers or planted directly in the ground as a specimen tree, hedge, or accent plant.

Overall, the variegated Citrus aurantium is not only a visually stunning addition to gardens but also offers the potential for culinary and aromatic delights with its fragrant flowers and bitter fruits.
