Inkberry Holly 'Gem Box®' 3 Gallon

Ilex glabra

A great alternative to boxwood, this dwarf, broadleaf evergreen presents as a dense, ball-shaped plant. 'Gem Box®' features small, dainty, dark green leaves with attrctive red tips during the spring flush. It maintains good branching right to the ground so that it never looks bare-legged. This variety is great when used to create a small evergreen hedge. It is a female plant that does have the potential to develop colorful, persistent berries for winter if a compatible male variety is nearby. Plant in well-drained, amended soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1? of water once a week the first year. Little pruning needed; shapes itself nicely. Remove dead branches trunk suckers or shear any time. When necessary, prune in spring to early summer. Fertilize in early spring, mid-summer and fall with an acidic fertilizer. Follow label instructions. Mulch 2? to suppress weeds, retain moisture and protect against extremes of soil temperature. Wrap in burlap or spray with Wilt-stop to protect from winter desiccation.
