Product Information


Golden King

A small but spectacular evergreen tree or shrub discovered growing in a domestic garden over a century ago.

Often referred to as variegated holly and despite its name is the female form of the plant.

The glossy leaves are quite flat, free from spines and are edged with a handsome golden yellow band.

When grown near a male plant the small white flowers are followed by bright red berries.

Very hardy and tolerant of most free draining soils Ilex Golden King is also resistant to salty seaside air and urban pollution.

Easy to grow Ilex Golden King will retain its golden variegation even when grown in shade.

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.

Plants supplied ex. 10cm pots approx. 9 inches tall, they can be planted out immediately but best results are obtained when they are grown on for a short time in a slightly larger container before transplanting to their final growing positions




Multiple purchases attract discounts

If ordering a number of items please email us at  before paying and we will send an Invoice by return.

We ask all our buyers to remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons.  Please don’t panic if the plant you receive looks different to the image on the website. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, it is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just enjoying a well-earned rest before bursting into action for the new season. Particularly in autumn and winter many shrubs will lose their leaves and look rather bare, gaunt and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.

We want you to be happy with your purchase and all our items are checked and inspected visually before packing. In the unlikely event of a problem please advise us at  within 48hrs of delivery. Due to the nature of the goods we cannot accept any responsibility for their failure after planting as pests, disease, poor horticultural practice, extremes of weather and many other factors outside our control all take their toll. Goods will only be accepted for return after seller has been informed and given permission for their return.  Refunds will be issued when items are received back in saleable condition within 14 days from original despatch date. Buyer must pay all return charges except where an item has been despatched in error.
