    Features

    This evergreen is as cute as a button!

    One of the most dwarf Japanese hollies available, Brass Buckle® shines all year long because of its glossy, clear yellow, burn-resistant foliage. It's perfectly suited to edging walks and borders, as a container plant in milder climates, or as a striking accent in a rock garden. The fresh color of this variety is much nicer than that of other gold-leafed varieties.

    • This is a beautiful little plant, and they did an excellent job of packing them for shipping. I would highly recommend it.
