Description

As cute as a button!

Diminutive, finely textured Brass Buckle® Japanese holly shines all year long. The glossy, clear yellow evergreen foliage is burn-resistant, and is a fresh shade of gold that is much nicer than that of other varieties. Very neat and useful dwarf habit.

Soil

Ideally, grow in moist acidic soils with good drainage. Tolerates urban conditions well, however.

Pruning

Seldom needed, may be shaped in late winter.

Uses

Very compact, dwarf habit is excellent for rock gardens and garden railways. Or use as a groundcover, edging, in mixed borders, or containers.

Growing Tips

Chlorosis may occur on alkaline soils. Super dwarf habit all but eliminates the need to prune. Grows in shade, but color and form are best with some sun.
