Goshiki Variegated Osmanthus
Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Goshiki' - aka False Holly

Goshiki Osmanthus, also known as Variegated False Holly, is an eyecatching evergreen shrub with striking variegated foliage and fragrant blooms on an upright, rounded pyramidal form. Plants can be pruned for a rounded shape. The foliage radiates year round with creamy white and yellow variegation on dark mint-green leaves. New leaves emerge bronze-red to pink! This beauty is truly in a class of it's own - a must for the gardener that enjoys unique and unusual plants.  

Goshiki Variegated Osmanthus is slow growing and requires little if any maintenance to keep its dense, pyramidal form. It's also disease, fungus, and pest resistant.  Plants will be fuller in shade. Part sun to mostly sun is preferred. It performs it's absolute best with a break from the direct sun during the hottest part of summer afternoons. Will tolerate a wide range of soils. Does best in a moist, well-drained soil of average fertility. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic. Just make sure to plant it in a well-drained site. USDA Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone >
