Japanese Holly


Set plants 3 to 4 feet apart in full sun or light shade. The soil should be light, well-drained, 2 inches of the rim with weed-free potting soil or growing medium.

For quick coverage, plant about 6 inches apart or use 3 plants for a 10-inch basket. Grow as you would in the garden, but bear in mind that plants in a container or basket tend to dry out more quickly and will need more frequent watering.


Once established, lamium requires little care, and can easily be increased by planting any of the numerous runners that will form. Can easily be cut back to restrain unwanted growth.
