I like variegated shrubs and this is a beauty - even more so with the promise of berries :)

It will be nice to see the berries ,Carole.My golden King still has most of its berries yet,and looks lovely..but yours looks a lot more prickly than mine,I wonder why?

Not sure Sandra perhaphs they are different species?

When I saw this pic I wondered why my 'Golden King' looks so different to yours. Your leaves are much more serrated, mine seem less so. Very strange!

5 Mar, 2011

 

Carole and Shirley.. I have just looked in my book,and it says,'Golden King'can have either serrated or smoother leaves...so problem solved ! I thought it was strange too,and yours looks a different shade of green to mine,Carole...anyway,they are both nice:o)

Phew ... thought I'd been sold an imposter ... : o ))

Thanks Clarice, Gee, Terra, Sandra and Shirley. Pleased the the different looks have been solved, its strange though to give the female species a title Golden King and the male Golden Queen, think there's a bit of cross dressing going on here lol!

Somebody with a weird sense of humour in the plant naming department! : o )

Will you be standing by with a bucket of cold water then ,Carole ? Spoilsport,just close your eyes,and don't add fertiliser.!. Lol.
