Chrispook's Garden

Ilex crenata. Japanese holly

Genus: Ilex.

Species: Ilex crenata.

I saw this in Bauhaus garden centre a few days ago. At first glance it looked like Box, but the lable announced it is an Ilex crenata otherwise known as Japanese Holly. It couldn't be further from the traditional holly if it tried. Not a prickle in sight. Thought it would add a touch of nice dark green to my terrace display so I bought it.
