(aka: Ilex vomitoria 'Oscar Gray') How about an evergreen foundation shrub that never needs pruning? This is your chance to save needless wasted energy on abusive hedge clipping. This amazing selection from Alabama's Dodd and Dodd nursery is a dwarf male seedling from Ilex vomitoria 'Gray's Greenleaf'. Ilex 'Oscar' is a compact, dwarf, self-pruning Southeast North American native holly that will eventually mature at 3' tall x 4' wide. Our 8-year-old plant is a dense 30" tall x 44" wide ball of exceptionally dark green foliage. Ilex 'Oscar' will tolerate boggy acidic soils as well as dry alkaline soils, making it ridiculously adaptable as a garden plant or in a rain garden.
