Ilex crenata 'Jersey Jewel'

Jersey Jewel Japanese Holly.  Beautiful texture and form on a slow growing dwarf shrub.  Grows just 2-4 inches per year.  Overall shape is upright and round, but has a very sculptural form. Pretty glossy dark green rounded leaves are clustered in rosettes at the ends of the stems and are evergreen.  Similar to Ilex crenata 'Dwarf Pagoda', but with slightly smaller leaves.  Height and upright habit make it a nice backdrop behind a miniature bench.  Very dramatic when planted with yellow Sedum 'Tokyo Sun' or Sagina 'Aurea'.  Great for fairy gardens and miniatures gardenes, especially those with an oriental theme.  Provide protection from early frosts.  Cold hardy to -10 F, zone 5/6.  Note:  Plants are growing in 2.25" x 2.25" x 3.5"h pots.  Current crop is about 3-4" tall.
