Goshiki
'Osmanthus Heterophyllus'
The Goshiki (false holly), also known as Osmanthus Heterophyllus, is an extremely tough, strikingly variegated evergreen shrub. Goshiki means 'five colored' in Japanese and refers to the various colors found on each leaf. Cream, pink, orange, yellow and white appear as attractive spots and swirls that combine together to create an eye-catching display. Osmanthus heterophyllus are known for its wonderfully fragrant flowers, but this cultivar, at least when young, does not flower. Grown in the part sun and well drained soil. Here at the R.W. Norton Art Gallery, it is planted in the Maple Ridge Garden in mostly shade. Zone 6-9.
