Description

This low-growing holly is ideal for smaller gardens, usually growing to a maximum of only 2 ft. Ilex 'Little Rascal' forms dense bushes with small, evergreen foliage that bear finely serrated, coppery-red margins. The foliage sometimes turns completely purple in winter.

Ilex 'Little Rascal' is a more user-friendly shrub than the common holly, since the leaves are spiky rather than thorny. This slow-growing shrub can be planted into containers and clipped into neat spheres to make topiary features for small courtyards, terraces and patios. Alternatively, plant it as a low hedge to divide up areas, or for low-maintenance, all-year-round structural planting.

Ilex 'Little Rascal' is a robust, undemanding shrub that grows in full sun to partial shade and tolerates a wide range of soils. In May, it bears small white male flowers. Although the flowers are inconspicuous, this non-berrying male clone makes an excellent pollinator for berrying female Ilex aquifolium and Ilex x altaclerensis cultivars growing nearby. Height: 60cm (24in). Spread: 90cm (35in).

How to Grow
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.
More Info
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.
