Pseudopanax lessonii ‘Gold Splash’
Pseudopanax lessonii ‘Gold Splash’ is a large, evergreen, bushy shrub or small tree, growing up to 20 ft (6 m) high. The yellow splashed, variegated leaves are 2–6 in (5–15 cm) long, arranged in threes to fives. The tiny greenish flowers are inconspicuous, arranged like those of ivy; summer.
Pseudopanax lessonii ‘Gold Splash’ was found about 1969 in the garden of Trevor Davies, New Plymouth, North Island, New Zealand, as a sport from the stump of Pseudopanax lessonii. Not fully hardy in the UK, it needs winter protection.
