This is a beautiful dwarf Japanese Holly which is quite unlike any normal Holly and is sometimes mistaken for a Buxus form. It is very rare and very expensive and is for the serious plant collector.
It is a Bonsai form but is easy to grow and will grow virtually anywhere. This cloud pruned specimen will grace any Japanese/Oriental style garden or rockery.
