Ilex crenata ‘Lemon Gem’

Elegant, small leafed, evergreen shrub, a dwarf at an eventual 2-3’ tall and a bit wider.  Slow and compact, formal appearance without pruning.  New growth is bright lemon yellow. All but the worst soils, sun to part shade, regular water. Deer don’t bother it at our place.  Low care! Nice mixed in with dwarf conifers or used as a low hedge.
