Densa Inkberry Holly (Ilex Glabra Densa) is a selection of our native Inkberry that boasts a broad upright habit and holds its foliage at the base of the plant. This compact evergreen shrub tolerates heat and drought and grows exceptionally well in urban areas.

Dark green foliage pairs with black berry-like fruit in the fall through spring, adding to this unique yard shrub's interest and beauty. The lustrous bushes in late spring to summer produce tiny white flowers that contrast beautifully with the green leaves.

Ideal care for these evergreen landscape plants includes full sun and well-draining, acidic soil. The Densa Inkberries are not particular about their soil mediums and can easily tolerate alkaline soils along with wet soil. Additionally, these stunning yard hollies enjoy regular watering and light mulching around the roots to help retain moisture.

Keeping their compact, clean form with little-to-no pruning, these low-maintenance shrubs are perfect for a wide range of yard designs. The upright branches and deep green color match just about any garden color palate, and the low maintenance care makes for easy upkeep.

Plant your Inkberry Holly in early spring to enjoy the year-round beauty it provides to a yard. The Inkberry will easily bring structure and style to a landscape and can be used as foundation plantings, backdrops, yard borders, and container gardens.
