Design IdeasThis dwarf Chinese Holly is probably the most widely used, particularly in warmer climates. Its dense but layered form is perfect for a natural hedge or even as an edging plant for taller flowering shrubs. Perfect for Asian-inspired gardens, at home in the woodland setting, or as a controlled source of unique texture in formal settings. Often planted beneath windows, where its slow growth and shorter stature makes it attractive from indoors and out.










Full sun, Partial shade
Moist but well-drained
