Holly - Compact Japanese

The Compact Japanese Holly, Ilex crenata 'Compacta', is a well-branched, somewhat oval-shaped, and compact shrub to 4 feet high and wide.


It does well in neutral to acid soil. Plant this holly in mass groups as low shrubs, low hedges, or tall groundcovers. The compact habit of growth and small leaves make these ideal plants for use as clipped, formal hedges.


Japanese Holly develops without clipping making it well suited for planting along a foundation. Plant 3 to 4 feet apart to form a hedge, plant farther apart if used in a shrub border.


It shears fairly well, but will thin slightly toward the base, especially if not located in full sun. This compact holly can be sheared into various shapes.


This plant is an evergreen and it is deer resistant!


If you are using this plant as a hedge, clip the hedge so it is wider at the bottom. This will allow light to the bottom leaves and branches and will help keep the hedge full to the ground.


Zones 6-9.
