Buy Ilex crenata Luxus® ('Annys5') (PBR) Ilex crenata:

  • 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

    This bushy evergreen shrub can be tightly clipped into almost any shape, so will make a really viable alternative to box (Buxus). This is particularly useful if you existing box plants have been affected by blight, which has become more widespread over the last few years. This Ilex has small (to 2cm long), slightly glossy green leaves, and may develop rounded black fruits in autumn. Tolerant of shade and urban pollution, this is a tough, long-lived and versatile plant.

  • Garden care: Plants grown as free-standing specimens require minimal pruning - remove diseased 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.
