Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Goshiki'
Not a true holly, but has the look & leaf structure of one. Has green flecking on gold foliage with the new growth being a very pretty pinkish bronze color. Very heat tolerant - excellent choice for places in the South & Southeast. Makes an excellent specimen planting, or also works well in group plantings as well.
We suggest that colder climate locations provide an area with some sort of winter protection against cold wintry winds. Has been known to have trouble with exposure to severe winter weather - especially when young, or when grown in containers.
