USDA Plant Hardiness Zones:  6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

Truly in a class of its own, Goshiki Osmanthus, also known as Variegated False Holly, is an eyecatching evergreen shrub with radiant variegated leaves of creamy white, yellow and dark mint-green on an upright pyramidal form. What's more, the new leaves in spring emerge bronze-red to pink for a spectacular show of contrasting color! As with most other Osmanthus, the fall flowers have a fresh, sweet fragrance in the garden. When left to grow natural plants will assume a more pyramidal form, however, with occasional pruning globe and other shapes are possible. This beauty is a must for the gardener that enjoys unique and unusual plants.




Landscape & Garden Uses

With its outstanding color and pyramidal form to 6 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, the Goshiki Osmanthus is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or as a hedge in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Performs exceptionally well in pots, planters and other containers. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens, holly gardens and Asian gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  3 to 4 feet apart for solid hedges;  10 feet or more apart for space between plants.




Cultural Preferences

Goshiki Variegated Osmanthus is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. That said, in our north central Georgia gardens and other areas that have hot summer climates it performs better when provided some shade or filtered sun during the mid-afternoon hours. Maintenance is minimal; requiring little if any pruning to keep its dense, pyramidal form. It's also disease, fungus, and pest resistant. Constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic. Just make sure to plant it in a well-drained site.
