Japanese Holly (Ilex crenata 'Dark green')

Japanese Holly (Ilex Crenata Dark Green) Trough hedging is a native to East Asia and commonly just known as Japanese Holly.

It is a form of Holly, but it has small Box like spineless leaves and is sometimes also called the Box leaved holly.

Increasingly Japanese Holly (Ilex crenata Dark Green) Trough hedging is seen as a good alternative to Box hedging with small dark green glossy foliage that is slow growing and can be trimmed to form a neat dense dwarf hedge.

Japanese Holly (Ilex crenata Dark Green) trough hedging grows approximately 15-18cm per year and should be pruned in summer.  When pruned, it will produce fresh growth from old wood so if hard pruning is needed and areas of bare stem are cut into, new growth will occur.

Japanese Holly (Ilex crenata Dark Green) hedging will grow in most soil types but it prefers a well-drained soil so avoid soils that can lie wet. It also prefers a neutral to acidic soil.  To keep it looking its best it will benefit from regular feeding during the growing season.
