This variety of Osmanthus, also known as Goshiki False Holly, is a new selection with new growth tinged with pink and orange maturing to creamy-yellow over the dark green leaves. The Japanese name refers to the five foliage colors. The Goshiki False holly makes a great accent, thriving in full to partial sun to 4 to 8 feet tall or clip to shape. Evergreen. This species of Osmanthus looks a lot like English Holly, so it can be used as a low prickly hedge or add to foundation planting under windows, where the floral perfume can waft in. Try as a unique mid-height accent in shrub borders. Far wider than it is tall, so group to cover large bare areas of the garden. Shipped as a potted specimen in its original soil and container. Plants are prime and well shaped. Hardy to USDA zone 6. Photo used courtesy of maggie_and_her_camera. To see more of her work, please see our links page.
Frequently Asked Questions
Love my false holly, but now where do I plant it?
Plant your goshiki false holly in either sun to partial sun. Cold hardy to USDA zone 6, a stunning color contrast when planted in companion with any of the dwarf red leafed barberries. Use in a firescaping landscape or in the woodland garden. Happiest in sun to partial shade, avoiding reflected heat.

Besides the barberry, any other companion plants to suggest?
Consider planting with gold leaf shrubs to highlight the multi-colors of the Goshiki False Holly. Other Asian inspired plants like Nandina, Peony, and Asiatic Lilies complement this Asian native
