Goshiki Holly-leaf Tea Olive. 'Goshiki' means "five colors" in Japanese and this cultivar lives up to its billing. On each leaf over a base of gold and pale green are many shades of cream, gold and yellows splashes. It has the same growth habit and growth rate as 'Variegatus' and does well in sun or shade. You will fall in love with this plant. It is awesome! When it gets some age on it, it will begin to flower each fall, and once a plant reaches maturity, the leaves will loose their spiny edges and become a simple elliptic shape with a spine at the tip. Because of the degree of variegation, this selection doesn't grow as fast as the species, and because of this, it is much easier to maintain at a desired size. It is quite popular in Japan as a container plant.
