A versatile tree that’s great for almost all bonsai styles.

A popular bonsai specimen grown in various upright, slanting and cascade styles. This variety has densely packed and small deep green, glossy leaves that sometimes get this tree confused with Japanese Box.

This compact deciduous holly reaches up to 3m tall with equal or greater spread. Pale yellow berries ripen in March and stand out on reddish-brown branches, persisting into early winter and attracting birds.

Propagation

Best grown in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. The tree is adaptable to wet soils and grows best in a sunny position. Only female plants produce fruit, so it is best to grow several plants to be sure of getting a female.
