Ilex crenata 'Green Hedger' is a compact, multi-branched, rounded, dense, evergreen shrub with small, oval, glossy, dark green leaves. Tiny, white, inconspicuous flowers bloom in spring and early summer, and are followed by insignificant, glossy, black berries. Ilex crenata 'Green Hedger' can tolerate most soil types, except waterlogged. It grows best in moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun or dappled shade. Very resistant to frost and suitable for exposed positions. Very adaptable to air pollution and urban conditions. No serious pest or disease problems. A male cultivar planted nearby is needed for fruit production. Low maintenance plant, tolerant of hard pruning and trimming. Japanese holly 'Green Hedger' is perfect for trimming into topiaries and low hedges and screens. It also looks great as a specimen or accent plant. Suitable for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. It is an excellent alternative to buxus. Good for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
