'Sky Pencil' Japanese Holly

Ilex crenata

Makes an elegant, formal statement in large containers.

A narrow, columnar form with dark green foliage that stays neat year-round, and often sports small purple berries in fall, with a male pollenizer nearby. Leaves lack sharp points, making it ideal for decks, patios, or entryways as a vertical accent or privacy screening. Evergreen. This columnar holly makes a great vertical accent in narrow spaces. 

Use in portable pots and boxes for porch, patio, and terrace. Try pairs to flank a wall fountain or a sculpture. Exceptional at the front entry to traditional architecture. Plant close together for a windbreak, privacy screen or solid background for an artistic focal point.
