Japanese Holly Ilex Crenata Ball Shape Topiary

Japanese Holly Topiary Balls (Ilex Crenata)

Ilex Crenata or Japanese Holly Topiary Balls provide a very similar look and effect to the traditional Box Topiary Balls. They have a similar deep green foliage colour and are similarly small leaved and naturally bushy in growth, these traits make them excellent Topiary subjects for a very wide range of shapes and forms.

Ilex Crenata Topiary balls has become much more popular lately as an alternative to Box Balls because the plants are not susceptible to the same problems that have plagued Buxus Hedging and Topiary, namely Box Blight and Box Moth/Caterpillar.

Product Information

We offer an increasing range of Japanese Holly Balls, and they are ideal for use in the same way as Box Balls. They are well suited to growing in containers and would look just as good either side of an entrance or doorway or as a statement between different areas or themes within a garden. These Topiary Plants are effective punctuating runs of Japanese Holly Hedging Plants that are also very popular due to their resistance to Box pests and diseases. The same types of formal designs and knot gardens that were traditionally created with Box plants can all be created entirely from Ilex crenata.

Where Box Balls were never that well suited for shadier areas, (growth is not so bushy and in damp weather with no direct sun and a lack of air movement to dry them, they are left susceptible to blight) Japanese Holly Balls are more suited and is a very tough and hardy species putting up with cold and shady areas perfectly.
