GEM BOX® INKBERRY

Ilex glabra 'SMNIGAB17'
PP27554 Plant propagation prohibited

Breeder
Buy Gem Box® Inkberry online. A cool new dwarf, broadleaf evergreen that looks more like a boxwood than an inkberry! This female, dense, ball-shaped plant has small, dainty, dark green leaves with attractive red tips during the spring flush. Maintains good branching right to the ground so it never looks bare-legged like other cultivars can. Great as a small evergreen hedge or as a container specimen.

Mature Height:

2-3 Feet

Mature Spread:

2-3 Feet

Hardiness Zone:
