Osmanthus heterophyllus Goshiki

Goshiki translates from Japanese as Òfive colors.Ó New growth is pink. Then over the season its holly-like leaves turn dark-green, daubed with spots of creamy yellow, gray-green, and yellowish-green. Prefers full sun to light shade for best color. Erect branches create a billowy, roughly conical form. This slow-grower averages 3-4Õ high with a 3-5Õ spread. In ideal conditions and over 10-years time, it can reach 8-10Õ tall. *Deer Resistant* Attracts: Hummingbirds & Butterflies Photo credit: Hort Printers
