Ilex crenata, shaped into a cone, presents a refined and structured appearance in garden settings. This evergreen shrub features dense foliage comprised of small, glossy green leaves, which retain their colour throughout the year. Pruned into a cone shape, it offers a neat and formal aesthetic that suits both traditional and contemporary garden designs. Japanese holly is valued not only for its visual appeal but also for its durability and adaptability to various growing conditions. 

  • Compact Growth: When maintained as a cone, Ilex crenata forms a dense and compact structure, making it suitable for use as a specimen plant, in formal hedges, or as a focal point in garden beds.

  • Evergreen Foliage: The small, glossy leaves of Japanese holly provide year-round interest and colour, maintaining their vibrant green hue even in winter.

  • Low Maintenance: Ilex crenata is relatively low maintenance once established, requiring occasional pruning to maintain its desired shape and size.

  • Versatile Use: Ideal for both sunny and partially shaded areas, this shrub can be used in various garden styles, from formal gardens to contemporary landscapes

Add some slow release fertilizer during the spring and provide a feed every few weeks in the summer for best results. Make sure the soil is well drained so that the plants aren't standing in water. Best clipped in July and August.
