Why Gem Box® Holly Shrubs?
A dense, compact shrub with small dark green leaves, the Gem Box® Holly is the ideal substitute for your typical plant bed boxwood. Also known as the Inkberry Holly, it develops attractive red tips during the spring and requires virtually no upkeep.
You get the look of a classic boxwood with the benefits of a holly. Unlike typical hollies that can grow too large or overpowering, the Baby lives up to its name, staying very compact but delivering all the perks you love in a holly, including berries and evergreen foliage.
In fact, it's a perfect alternative to the classic boxwood. Unlike many other varieties, it maintains its dense habit right to the ground without a leggy look. And it's unbelievably versatile, perfect for hedging, container-growing, or specimen planting.
No matter where it's planted, you get a manicured appearance without the fuss. Although it can be pruned and shaped, it grows naturally into a polished, tidy silhouette. The Gem Box® Holly delivers instant curb appeal, taking any space to the next level. Especially since it's resistant to pests, disease and other ailments that cause other boxwood varieties to fade.
