Ilex crenata 'Golden Gem' is a delightful cultivar of the Japanese Holly family, distinguished by its small, golden-yellow leaves. Unlike many other hollies, 'Golden Gem' lacks the typical prickly leaves, instead presenting rounded, soft foliage. With its compact and dense growth, it can serve as an eye-catching specimen plant, a low hedge, or a border in both contemporary and traditional gardens. Its resilience and year-round color make it a valuable asset to any landscape.

Why We Like It

  • Brilliant golden-yellow foliage offers year-round vibrancy.
  • Compact growth makes it versatile for various garden uses.
  • Tolerant nature ensures it can thrive in various conditions.

What to Know

  • Best grown in full sun to part shade to maintain its vibrant hue.
  • Prefers well-draining soil and moderate watering.
  • Though tolerant of pruning, it can be shaped in early spring if desired.
  • Generally resistant to pests and diseases, with occasional concerns about holly leaf blight or aphids.
  • While it resembles boxwood and can be a substitute, ensure it's not placed in waterlogged soils.

Foliage Colour

  • Golden-yellow.

Flowering Months

  • 'Golden Gem' is primarily grown for its foliage, but it may produce inconspicuous white flowers in late spring, typically around May.

Eventual Height and Spread

  • Height: 60-80 centimeters.
  • Spread: 60-80 centimeters.
