Regular price $15.00 Sale

Ilex crenata 'Compacta'

The versatile Compacta Holly, also called Japanese, or boxleaf holly, is much used here at Toms Creek because its handsome, dark-green, shiny foliage adds texture to shrub beds and borders, as well as to foundation, mass, or hedge plantings.

It is a dense-form, mounding that is slightly wider than it is high. Prefers slightly acid soils. Can be sheared.
