This Japanese evergreen shrub, 'Goshiki' is rather like holly in appearance, with speckled leaves, which are pale green turning to deeper green with age. It is slow to establish, and should be planted as a large specimen in spring to allow it to settle in before autumn. Plants are fairly hardy in most gardens, but the leaves may be scorched by cold winds in late winter and spring. The foliage is very dense and tolerates clipping as a hedge, but this removes the flowers, which appear in autumn and are very sweetly scented.

I inherited this plant and is 6ft tall by 4ft. It is very prickly but serves a purpose against a back wall. I trim it once a year to keep it manageable. I have never seen it flower nor has it suffered from scorched leaves but it is in a sheltered position. The foliage is attractive - am thinking of topiary shaping at the top.
