Why Compacta Japanese Holly Shrubs?

Dense green foliage, a neat globe-like form, and virtually no upkeep: With the Compacta Japanese Holly, you get a full landscape transformation in one tidy package. Plus, unlike similar holly varieties, the Compacta's young stems are purple, offering rich contrast that takes your curb appeal up a notch.

Small black fruit emerges throughout the winter, creating a unique centerpiece for graceful wildlife in your garden. From low shrubbery and hedging to tall groundcovers, the Compacta's habit, slow growth rate, and small leaves make it well-suited for any area. No matter where you place it, it lends a new note of color to your homescape.

Planted in groups, the Compacta's crowns mold together to form a sleek sea of rich evergreen color...all without excessive pruning or care. When it comes to the Compacta, you'll check off every box on your landscape must-have list.
