This cool new dwarf, broadleaf evergreen looks more like a boxwood than an inkberry. A dense, ball-shaped plant, Gem Box ilex has small, dainty, dark green leaves with attractive red tips during the spring flush. It maintains good branching right to the ground so it never looks bare-legged like other cultivars may. It's great as a small evergreen hedge or used as a container specimen in milder climates. As versatile and good-looking as boxwood with no disease issues plus it is deer resistant so no need to worry about nibbling pests. Add it to your landscape today for some impressive structure and foliage color.
