The Golden Oakland® Holly is a bold evergreen, growing a foot a year to be 15 or 20 feet tall and up to 15 feet wide. The leaves are bright, light yellow, with a wide edge of yellow around a central area of yellow-green. New leaves in spring are solid yellow, before the central green area develops. The leaves are spiny, with a unique oblong form resembling the leaf of an oak tree. Grow it as a bright specimen on a lawn or in a bed, or among dark-leaf evergreens around your home. It is naturally dense and bushy, but can be trimmed if you wish. Make a spectacular hedge or screen with it, to hide an unsightly fence or wall, or create a backdrop for your garden.

  • Bold variegated leaves with a broad yellow margin
  • Vigorous growth to 15 or 20 feet tall
  • Attractive oak-leaf appearance to the spiny foliage
  • Perfect to brighten your winter garden
  • Ideal for colorful hedges and screening

Full sun will give the best color to the Golden Oakland® Holly, but it will grow with some shade too. It grows in all well-drained soils, preferring richer, moist and slightly acidic ones. Pests and diseases don’t normally cause any serious problems and it isn’t eaten by deer. Trim between late spring and early fall, as needed. This variety has not been reported to produce berries, but it is a female plant.
