Holly crenata 'Convexa' (Large Plant)

Japanese Holly

Hardy Shrub

A fast-growing form of Japanese Holly that is often used for hedges, due to its glossy evergreen foliage and bushy habit. Foliage is dark green and makes an elegant backdrop to the flower garden or provide strong form in architectural gardens. In spring and summer it bears small, dull white flowers, followed in autumn by small black berries. Holly crenata 'Convexa' is also a worthy winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 250cm (98"). Spread: 150cm (59").

When growing Holly in patio containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun or semi shade. Alternatively, plant Holly standards directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil.
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of border grown plants. Avoid mounding mulch up around the stem as this may cause it to rot.

Caution: Harmful if eaten.
