Description

Dazzling color.

Enjoy color all year long with super glossy Waxwing™ Gold mirror bush. This New Zealand native is ideal for evergreen hedging, groundcover, and specimen plantings. Golden foliage is splashed with a bold green center, and glowing orange tones appear on the margins during cool weather. Though quite tender, this vigorous shrub makes a nice choice for seasonal color in cold climates and can be brought indoors and grown as a houseplant in winter.
