This cultivar was given to us in Japan by nurseryman Masashi Shibamichi. It appears to be a much brighter gold than any forms of variegated Burford Hollies that we have seen in the trade. Seeing the brilliant foliage of plants in the field was overwhelming. The leaves emerge a florescent golden-yellow in the spring, but as they harden off, the central part of the leaf will turn greenish. Since Burford Holly is a female and will set fruit without fertilization, this cultivar should berry once it begins to flower.
