Ilex crenata Helleri is a compact and versatile variety of Japanese holly that brings year-round interest to any garden. This evergreen shrub is known for its small, glossy, dark-green leaves that resemble those of boxwood, making it an excellent alternative for areas where boxwood blight is a concern.
In addition to its attractive foliage, 'Helleri' also produces small, inconspicuous white flowers in spring, followed by black berries in autumn and winter. These berries can provide a source of food for birds and other wildlife.
This plant thrives in a variety of conditions, from full sun to partial shade, and is tolerant of different soil types. It's also resistant to common pests and diseases, making it a great low-maintenance choice for gardeners. It is perfect for borders, rock gardens or container planting. Its dense, mounding habit and fine texture make it ideal for hedging and topiary work too.
The Helleri is a dwarf variety that typically grows to about 0.6-1 metre in height and spread.
