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

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

Note: For our customers who live and garden North of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Osmanthus variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

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 its own - a must for the gardener that enjoys unique and unusual plants.  




Landscape & Garden Uses

With it's outstanding color and pyramidal form to 6 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet tall, the Goshiki Osmanthus is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings, or as a hedge in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Also makes a fine container garden plant. A fine addition to fragrance gardens and Asian gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  3-4' for hedges;  10 feet 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.
