Choysia Sundance brown spots.

Hello there, please may someone assure me that this is just frost damage? I’ve had a look online and there’s very little info about what it could be. The plant received some slow release granular feed in March and there is new growth at the tips. Is it just a question of being patient and waiting for a bit more seasonal warmth?

Many thanks.

    It think it's just been too cold and your choysia will recover when the weather warms up. The old leaves may drop off but it will grow new ones.

    I got rid of mine because it always had cold damage or sun damage so I had to cut the damaged parts off and it never flowered. I've had choisya in two gardens before this one, they were both 'sundance' and didn't have this problem, this one is 'Brico', so I'm wondering if it's just the variety. Which is yours?

    Many thanks for your replies. Much appreciated.

    I'm not too sure if my variety is Brica as I no longer have the label, but looking at photos online, it certainly looks like the same one. It’s frustrating because it romped away last summer when I first planted it, but seems to be having a bit of a sulk at the moment. I have a standard green choysia in another part of the garden that looks very robust and lush so this one might be on borrowed time!
