Ilex cornuta 'Carissa'

The Carissa is a dense, compact addition that provides a nice dark green accent to any landscape. This dwarf is low maintenance and simple to grow. The Carissa does well under many conditions, from alkaline soil to poor soil and part shade to full sun. Makes a nice background for flowering plants.
