Features

Small, refined columnar evergreen.

Smaller than its sister Sky Pointer®, Patti O Box has smaller, darker leaves and glossier foliage. Much darker than typical I. crenata, this petite evergreen is perfectly scaled for smaller gardens and patios, and is perfect for flanking formal entryways.

Top reasons to grow Patti O Box Japanese holly:

- Perfectly scaled for formal front porch landscaping

- Easy to grow in containers (zone 6 and warmer)

- Shade tolerant evergreen

Formerly sold as Patti O®.
