Ilex Crenata Balls also referred to as Japanese Holly Globes - these elegant densely growing plants are part of our quality Topiary collection. With small glossy leaves these plants lend themselves beautifully to being clipped into all kinds of shapes, only restricted by your imagination. A firm favourite with all Topiary lovers, Ilex Crenata is reasonably slow growing so a twice yearly trim is all that is required to keep it's original shape. These Japanese Holly Globes are perfect for container growing on roof terraces or window boxes and they look very graceful when placed either side of an entrance door. Ilex Crenata is our plant of choice for Topiary shapes - see what can be achieved with a little artistry - view our unique Japanese Cloud Trees - grown in their native Japan and imported to the UK by Paramount Plants.
