Brass Buckles Holly

Ilex crenata 'Brass Buckle'

Brass Buckles Holly Shrubs are one of the most dwarf Japanese hollies available. Brass Buckle Holly shine all year long due to its glossy, clear yellow, burn-resistant foliage. It's best when used as an edging shrub along sidewalks and borders, or as a container plant in milder climates. The bright color of this variety is much nicer than that of other gold-leafed Japanese hollies.

Brass Buckles Holly Shrubs are a dwarf rounded, slow-growing, evergreen cultivar that is densely clad with tiny, glossy, yellow, obovate, evergreen leaves (to only 1/2" long). Developed by Proven Winners, this burn-resistant shrub outshines its companions with its bright yellow, rounded foliage and mounded form. This shrub will benefit from an evergreen fertilizer in the spring. Brass Buckles Holly can be pruned to maintain its shape; the best time to do this is late winter.
