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.
