“Aureum” is an evergreen shrub with an erect growing habit. It has delightful leaves which can have various colourations. Common foliage has medium green interiors, surrounded by a light-green margin. Some leaves present as wholly light yellow-green, although this can change in more mature plants with older leaves.
Be aware that although the leaves are generally small, during transplanting the plant may lose its foliage as it adjusts to its new environment.
On panicles, small white flowers sprout during the main flowering season in mid-summer for this hedge. Later the flowers are followed by shiny, pea-sized berries.
In partial shade or in sun, these plants grow well. In addition, they are adaptable to most soil and air conditions. As such, these plants are valued for their ability to thrive in urban environments where air quality might be a concern.
Excellent plants for hedge rows due to their density and adaptability. They are hardy plants and tolerate temperatures down to -15⁰ C and more if sheltered from cold, dry winter winds.
