Product Information

Eye-catching shrub with striking evergreen foliage, hardy and pest-free natured for year-round beauty, and arrives to you already sculpted into a pyramid topiary shape.

Also known as Japanese Holly, this variety is an easy-grow and robust alternative of ornate hedging, thankfully without the feared pest and disease issues associated with the widely grown Box hedging.

This evergreen Ilex boasts dark and glossy green leaves, very similar to Buxus hedging, and is supplied shaped like a pyramid, ready to display right away!

Leaves are small, yet plentiful, masterfully coating the plant in colour regardless of the seasonal conditions falling on the garden. Plus, summer brings a scattering of dainty white flowers, followed by shiny black autumnal fruits.

A compact variety, which can be planted either directly into the ground, where it provides an excellent foil for your other colourful plants, or in an ornamental planter for the patio, balcony, decking, or even as a pair to frame a door, gate, or pathway the possibilities are endless!

Very hardy, equipped to survive freezing conditions of -15C and colder, and able to thrive whether in a sunny garden spot or in partial shade.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, approximately 65-75cm tall, ready to plant.

Top Tips

This topiary shrub needs a trim at least once per year, in early summer, to keep the neat and tidy shape.

Care Information

  • Formal hedges can be trimmed in late summer and a 5-6cm mulch of well-rotted compost or manure added around the base of the plant.
  • Ilex crenata grows well in pots. Try your hand at a range of topiary styles and shapes - it's a great way to get kids involved with gardening and isn't just reserved for grand estates!
  • Take care with those planted in containers over winter to prevent the roots from freezing. Place them in a sheltered spot during severe weather.
  • Feed with a slow-release plant food to keep the foliage healthy.

Planting:

  • Best planted in either autumn or spring in fertile, well-drained soil and kept well watered, particularly when grown in full sun. However, pot-grown plants can be planted any time of year as long as the ground is not wet or waterlogged.
  • Do not allow this to dry out, particularly while young. Check regularly through the growing season and keep the soil moist.
