Ilex crenata 'Convexa'

This is a medium sized evergreen shrub that is suitable for a broad range of sites. We grow it under an English walnut with great success. Ilex crenata 'Convexa' has matte green leaves that recurve at their edges, just as the cultivar name implies. New foliage is lime green and slightly glossy. In our garden, this Japanese holly has an open habit. We pinch back unwanted growth to keep the plant in shape. It has never grown as tall as the literature describes. After ten years it is no more than 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide. This can be used as a woodland hedge or, as we have done, as a single specimen. A Great Plant Picks selection.
