The Drops of Gold Japanese Holly is a colorful and bright evergreen bush, forming a broad mound that is easily trimmed into any size and shape you want it to be. When grown in full sun the leaves take on bold golden variegation, often being solid gold, contrasting with the dark green of the interior foliage. The small leaves and bush habit make this plant look more like boxwood than typical holly bushes. Grow it as bright accents, as a colorful hedge, or for groundcover in larger beds.

  • Golden foliage as if sprinkled with liquid gold
  • Broad mounding habit and dense growth
  • Easily trimmed into hedges and balls
  • Resembles boxwood, but much easier to grow
  • Resistant to heat, humidity, dryness, salt and urban conditions

Grow the Drops of Gold Japanese Holly in full sun for the best leaf coloring. It grows well in almost any well-drained soil, growing most vigorously in slightly acidic soils rich in organic material, but easy to grow almost anywhere. It is very resistant to heat and drought, grows in urban conditions and resists salt near the coast. Pest or diseases are very rare, and it can be trimmed at almost any time, with ease.
