Topiary Ball – Ilex crenata Jenny
Ilex crenata (small leaved holly) is a box substitute that is resistant to pest and disease problems that some times strike traditional topiary cultivars. It is an evergreen with green glossy leaves very similar to box. Green Glory is a compact, small leaved and mid-green leaf coloured variety of ilex crenata that is perfect as an alternative to the well known Buxus for topiary forms. Plant directly in the garden or use in planters, just never allow it to dry out. Supplied in approx. 5 litre containers with a ball of around 20-25cm in diameter.
