Ilex Golden King

Ilex x altaclerensis Golden King
Grown In Yorkshire

Looking for a stunning variegated evergreen? Ilex Golden King is a large but compact shrub. Deep green leaves are edged bright golden-yellow. Young spine-toothed leaves become spineless as they grow. In May and June, small white flowers appear. As it is a female holly variety, the Ilex Golden King produces reddish-brown berries in winter if a male pollinating plant is nearby.

Ilex Golden King can grow in full sun or part shade. But it will produce better leaf colour in full sun. Tolerant of air pollution, it thrives in moist but well-drained soil. When grown together, multiple plants can create an impressive hedge.

A prickly project?
