Textures and Colours


An exotic foliage shrub full of colour and texture, an asset to anyones garden. It is an evergreen/gold which makes it stand out, a showy plant. Flowers are white and produce attractive sprays through much of the year, very small round seeds. Gold Nugget can reach 1.5m in 4 years if there is enough sunlight and water. 

  • Bird and Pollinator attractant 
  • Great Patio Plants 
  • Good for low maintenance gardens
  • Perfect for a hedge or a border
  • Remains a tight round ball which can be pruned to shape
Grows well in most soil types, prefers well drained soils, keep moist. Use slow release fertiliser in the warmer months. Major pests of the Gold Nugget are chewing insects such as grasshoppers; these can be simply crushed or sprayed with an insecticide. 

  • Full Sun/Part Shade
  • Space 0.5m - 1m apart
