Berry Heavy® Gold Ilex verticillata
Get the most out of limited space by planting shrubs with four season interest. These hardworking shrubs need to have lovely foliage, pretty flowers, interesting bark, or eye-catching fruits. Berry Heavy® Gold Ilex verticillata is a Winterberry Holly that has yellow-gold fruits in the late fall and early winter. At a mature height of 6 feet, these make excellent specimen shrubs.
Castle Gold™ Ilex
Castle Gold™ Ilex is an evergreen holly with bright chartreuse leaves that add light and depth to the garden all year long. In addition to the lovely loves, this holly has a big berry display as long as it has a pollinator (male) plant nearby.

One of our favorite new specimen plants, Lemon Lace™ Sambucus racemosa, has show-stopping chartreuse foliage with the lacy look of a Japanese Maple. You plant this elderberry primarily for the leaves, though the flowers and fruits are beautiful too!

Another prolific bloomer, Marie Gold™ Ceanothus, also called “New Jersey Tea,” has yellow-green leaves and pink flowers that emerge mid-summer and continue to open through fall. Seedheads provide fall and winter interest.
Golden Ticket™ Ligustrum
This isn’t your grandma’s privet. Golden Ticket™ Ligustrum has gorgeous foliage and beautiful flowers that do not develop into invasive seedheads. Great for a bright hedge plant.
