Heller's Japanese Holly

Out of stock

The Japanese Holly 'Heller's', Ilex crenata 'Helleri', is a very dense and dwarf form that reaches a height of 3 feet with an equal spread.

It is a good substitute for boxwood because of its small dark green leaves. 'Heller's' can be used as an accent plant, in mass plantings, as a landscape specimen, and in rock gardens.

This plant is used in the landscape in front of taller shrubs for a contrast in your landscape scene. It is best that it has a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system.

Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. This plant performs best in moist, well-drained acidic soils.

As with most other hollies, this plant is deer resistant!
