Goshiki in Japanese means, “five colored,” and when you see the gorgeous foliage of Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘Goshiki,’ you’ll quickly see how this variegated evergreen got its name. Sometimes referred to as “False Holly,” Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘Goshiki’ features holly type green foliage that is speckled and swirled with yellow, white, pink, and cream colors. A fairly slow grower, Goshiki will reach a height of 3 to 5 feet tall with a 4 foot spread, making it ideal for use as an accent shrub in borders or for a low hedge.
Plant Goshiki in a rich soil, in an area that gets partial to full sun. Prune in the spring to maintain the shape and appearance desired.
