Buy Ilex crenata Dark Green ('Icoprins11') (PBR) box-leaved holly - ball: A great alternative to box balls

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clipped to form a loose ball, this tough and tolerant plant will make an excellent alternative to box. It has lustrous, evergreen foliage, and takes urban pollution and shade in its stride. Perfect for pots, it can also be dotted through the border, providing a year-round anchor to more frivolous planting.

  • Garden care: Plants grown as free-standing specimens require minimal pruning - remove diseased or misplaced branches in spring. Trim plants grown as formal hedges in late summer. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.

I love the look of this as an evergreen topiary ball in a new border. Is it too late to plant this in cold wet Lancashire or should I wait until Spring 2019 to be sure of its survival?


These are fully hardy, so now is a great time to plant.
