Gem Box Inkberry Holly Shrubs for Sale Online

Introducing the first true Dwarf Inkberry Holly. This Inkberry looks more like a boxwood than an Inkberry Holly. Unlike its taller cousins, this Ilex glabra maintains its foliage to the ground allowing it to be trimmed into mounded shapes similar to boxwoods.

Perfect for trimming into a small evergreen hedge or growing in containers on the patio or deck. But the best part is that it's Deer Proof, so there's no need to worry about the local herd destroying your landscape.

This native alternative to boxwood shrubs grows much faster than boxwoods so that hedges will fill in faster too.
