A large spreading evergreen shrub or small tree, leaves are green with a striking yellow margin and almost spineless. Discovered in Edinburgh in 1884 this is probably one of the best yellow varieties of Holly. Holly trees are dioecious, which means that male and female flowers are produced on separate trees. Golden King is a female variety (Yes that's right Golden KING - Don't ask because I don't know the logic of 1884!) so a male tree in the vicinity is needed to produce berries. Any holly will do but just needs to be male. If you wish to plant a male please email.
