Care & Size Guidance
Ilex crenata ‘Golden Gem’ thrives in well-drained soil and adapts well to both full sun and partial shade, although it benefits from some protection against harsh afternoon sun. Regular watering is crucial during its establishment phase, after which it becomes moderately drought-tolerant. Minimal pruning to maintain its compact form can be done in early spring.
This cultivar typically reaches a height and spread of about 1 metre, forming a neat, rounded shape. Its smaller size and golden-yellow foliage make it an excellent choice for hedges, borders, or container planting, adding a touch of brightness and structure to gardens or landscapes.
