Ilex Crenata - Box Leaved Holly Ball 20/30cms ball

Box Leaved Holly is an excellent alternative to Box, not only is it almost identical in appearance, with its tiny glossy leaves. It is also resistant to Box blight and regenerates from old wood. It tolerates being planted in colder areas. Slow growing only needing light or occasional trimming. Ilex Crenata is used for creating our cloud trees. This Japanese method of pruning trees to resemble clouds is a fantastic feature in any garden.
