Info

While most gold leafed hollies look sick at best, this unique new holly is quite attractive. The spring flush is a brilliant yellow which slowly changes into a pleasing dusty yellow hue. Coloration is most prominent on leaves exposed to the sun. Little black berries appear even on young plants. Expect this shrub to grow 3-4' high and wide. 1 gallon plants.
