Ilex glabra Strongbox® PP30147

Holly - Inkberry

Strongbox® ('Ilexfarrowtracey') Inkberry Holly is a welcome introduction from Proven Winners offering a good native substitute for Boxwoods.  Ilex glabra Strongbox® looks like a short round Buxus, but it is more sun tolerant and moisture tolerant., as well an unthreatened by Boxwood Blight.  Since this compact Inkberry stays full to the ground, it can be used in containers, for low hedges and in mass plantings.  The tight habit and small leaves make pruning rarely necessary.
