A selection from UC Davis of our native Toyon, the 'Davis Gold' has golden yellow berries instead of the red berries that are typical for this species. It has also proved to be more disease resistant. This shrub is valued for its screening ability and creamy summertime flowers, and for its berries, that enliven the garden in the winter. Additionally, the berries are an important source of food for birds. This shrub or small tree will reach 15 - 20 feet tall and spread from 12 - 15 feet wide, though it can be kept smaller. Drought tolerant, sun or light shade.
