The Ilex aquifolium 'Aurea Marginata,' commonly known as Golden Variegated Holly, is an elegant and striking evergreen shrub that has been artfully shaped into a unique and whimsical parachute form. Standing at approximately 150 centimeters (about 5 feet) in height, this cultivated holly variety boasts an enchanting appearance that captures the imagination.

Its glossy, serrated leaves are the focal point of this cultivar. Each leaf features a rich green hue with striking golden-yellow margins, creating a vibrant and eye-catching contrast. The variegated foliage not only adds a touch of color but also illuminates any garden or landscape.

The parachute-shaped arrangement is meticulously maintained, with a rounded canopy that mimics the graceful descent of a parachute. The shrub's compact and dense growth habit makes it an ideal choice for decorative focal points in gardens, walkways, or container plantings.

Throughout the year, this Ilex aquifolium variety offers a striking display of color and texture, with its golden-edged leaves providing a delightful backdrop for festive holiday decorations. Its evergreen nature ensures that the 'Aurea Marginata' remains visually appealing year-round, making it a captivating addition to any outdoor space. This charming and carefully pruned holly variety is a testament to the artistry of horticultural design, adding a touch of magic to its surroundings.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
