Ilex glabra 'Gem Box'


Ordering plants has concluded for the season. The selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2023 plant catalog will be available later this winter.
A great little inkberry that stays small and compact without pruning and retains foliage right to the ground. Would make a lovely little hedge or interesting container plant. New growth is tinged red in the spring. Requires acidic soil to thrive.
