Plant of the Week: Brass Buckle™ Ilex


Brass section
Are you looking for a new kind of Ilex crenata? Maybe you would like to try an evergreen that isn't quite so...green. Well, here's one to try: Brass Buckle™ Japanese Holly.

It has clear, bright yellow color that is more attractive than that of other gold varieties. Brass Buckle™ has a very nice compact habit, too. Japanese hollies can be a little touchy in colder climates, but this one has done very well for us here in West Michigan.
 
Hardy to USDA Zone 6, it will grow in full sun or partial shade. Brass Buckle™ Ilex crenata grows 12-18" tall and wide - a great size for edging walks and borders.
