Ilex crenata Golden Gem

Golden Gem, a Variegated Boxleaf Holly, even smaller than other compact Holly; is covered with golden-yellow stippling. It is very low-growing.

It makes an excellent foundation plant when placed with a darker background plants. It is equally useful in a bed or border, creating a soft, yellowish-green effect.                                      *Deer Resistant
