Nordic Inkberry Holly is a compact and naturally rounded shrub that needs little pruning to maintain its formal appearance. This female plant has lustrous dark green leaves and if pollinated by a male, will produce black fruit during the fruiting season. The plants also produce small white flowers in the spring.

Inkberry holly plants are native to North America, and the berries are a nutritious food source for songbirds in the winter months. Nordic is deer resistant making it a useful plant in areas of high deer population.

Botanically referred to as 'Ilex Glabra Chamzin,' the Nordic Inkberry is an extremely hardy shrub that works to tolerate a wide range of conditions. These low maintenance shrubs enjoy full sun to part shade and appreciate moist, well-drained, slightly-acidic soils. The plants are not particular and tolerate a range of soils including average medium to wet soils, along with alkaline soils.

The Inkberry Hollies work great in foundation plantings, as well as in shrub borders and low hedges. Plant these evergreen shrubs as a backdrop for shorter flowering plants to add variation and depth to a garden. The dark green foliage makes the flowers of companion plants stand out.
