Additional Information About Compact Japanese Holly

Ilex Crenata 'Compacta' is a slow and moderate growing shrub that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6A through 9B. It matures to an average height of 3 feet to 4 feet and an average width of 3 feet to 4 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in loam or clay soil that is well drained or moderately drained.

Compacta Holly can be useful in the landscape in foundation plantings, as a background, in shrub borders, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, for topiary, in landscape beds or islands, to accentuate entryways, in small groupings or as a hedge and also in theme gardens.

Noteworthy Characteristics

Also known as the Compacta Holly, this boxwood-like holly is the perfect choice for creating formal hedges or shapes; anything from round to square to pyramidal...to animal figures! Does not like constantly soggy soil.

Uses

Compacta Holly is excellent for use in home foundation plantings, as a natural or formal clipped hedge, in small to large groupings, or in shrub borders. We like to use the Japanese Compact Holly to accentuate entryways; one on either side sheered to a round or pyramidal shape. It is also useful in containers.

Culture & Care Tips

The Compact Japanese Holly is easy to grow when provided well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. Some light shade is tolerated. Consistently wet soil can cause problems for any of the Japanese hollies (Ilex crenata).

I was concerned that it took a week for delivery, but was happy when I opened the box to find a perfectly good plant. I love the plant that I ordered! If I can't find any here at the nurseries, I will order more. I had a very good experience with ToGoGarden.com.

My plants arrived very quickly. They were well packed and didn’t suffer at all in shipping. The plants were large and healthy and are now doing well in our garden. I had trouble finding this particular variety of holly locally and was a bit nervous about buying online, but I will not hesitate to use ToGoGarden.com again.
