From the Rutgers holly breeding program of Dr. Elwin Orton (Ilex 'Mariesii' x Ilex 'John Nosal') comes this fabulous rock garden specimen. Although most true plant nuts have grown to hate this species of holly, this selection causes everyone to marvel. The natural shape essentially forms a tiny bonsai of closely stacked, tiny, dark green round leaves. The painfully slow growth rate, 20" tall in 10 years, is almost as fast as watching paint dry (a favorite Southern pastime). This is a superb plant for even the tiniest rock garden.
