Landscape Notes: Goshiki translates from Japanese as "five colors". Its new leaves emerge red and quickly turn green. The green leaves are daubed with spots of creamy white, gray-green, and yellow-green. This lovely evergreen selection makes a great accent or hedge.

Exposure/Culture: The Goshiki False Holly has lots of other advantages too, starting with its ability to grow in any garden conditions, from full sun to full shade and everything in between. So no more having to put a plant where it wants to be, not where you do; with the Goshiki False Holly just plant it where ever is best for you and it will be happy. It will also grow in most types of soil, from sand to clay, but does not do well in very wet conditions, since it likes a well-drained soil. It will grow from zone 6 into the warmest areas, so across most of the country it will be happy.

Other Notes: As a foundation plant around your home, the Goshiki False Holly is the perfect choice. It will grow steadily to about four feet tall and five feet across. If you have enough room it will eventually reach ten feet and even more across, but since it can be clipped easily at almost any time of year, the ultimate size is up to you. The more you clip the denser it will grow and those lovely pink new shoots will be produced in profusion.
