Holly-Inkberry 'Strongbox' - 3 Gal.

$55.99

ILEX GLABRA `STRONGBOX`

Love boxwood but struggle with disease or winter damage? Plant Strongboxinkberry holly instead. This native evergreen naturally grows as a broadly rounded mound, and keeps its leaves all the way to the ground for the lush, dense look you love. It can be pruned or shaped as you desire, or left to attain its neat natural shape. It's also much faster growing than boxwood, and offers good deer resistance, too.

Zone: 5 - 9

Mature Size: 24 - 36 in High x 24 - 36 in Wide

Growing Tips

Little care is needed to enjoy Strongbox inkberry holly in your landscape. It has shallow roots, so a 2-3" layer of mulch is a good idea. If you wish to trim or prune it, do so in mid-late spring, after the new growth has emerged. Strongbox is a female variety and will develop black berries if a compatible male pollinator is planted in the vicinity. Plant Strongbox inkberry holly anywhere you'd use boxwood - as a hedge, edging, or specimen.
