Goshiki Osmanthus

Often called "False Holly," Goshiki Osmanthus is a Japanese shrub whose small pointed leaves resemble holly in shape, but are full of variegated green and white—sometimes even pink and cream. In addition to the beautiful leaves, it delivers tiny, fragrant white flowers all over the shrub that will bring pollinators flocking to your garden. Goshiki Osmanthus is rarely of interest to deer, and once the plant is more established, it will become more drought resistant. It's perfect for lining walkways and for screening and privacy, since it can grow up to 10' tall.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others.

If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.
