Buy Ilex crenata Luxus ('Annys5') (PBR) - Globe Ilex crenata: A great alternative to Buxus

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    If you are looking for a tough, adaptable and disease resistant alternative to Buxus (box) topiary, then this could be just the ticket! This bushy shrub has already been clipped into a tight 18cm ball, so it's ideal for creating a formal look in pots, where it will offer year-round interest. Clipped topiary like this is also invaluable when woven through mixed borders, as it adds a structural element that acts as a foil for the more blousy seasonal froth.

  • Garden care: Plants grown as free-standing specimens require minimal pruning - remove damaged or misplaced branches in spring. Trim plants grown as formal hedges in late summer. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.
