Quick Overview:

A low growing handsome shrub with dark green lustrous foliage. The growth habit is dense and mounding with a wider spread. The Green Lustre is hardier than many Japanese hollies. Small flowers are inconspicuous followed by black fruit in winter. A great shrub for foundation planting a small hedge or mass planting.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of a wide variety of soils ranging from moist to dry and from sand to clay. Prefers light, moist, acidic soils with good drainage. Established plants have some tolerance for drought. Plants are dioecious (male and female flowers on separate plants), so both male and female plants must be present in order for the female plant to be pollinated and produce fruit.
