Comments: This is a truly dwarf growing shrub that seldom grows over about two feet tall. It produces dense, small dark green leaves and a low spreading mass. It is an excellent ground cover plant for raised planters. This and other Japanese hollies cannot tolerate wet soils so do not overwater any of the Japanese hollies.
