Japanese Holly Kanehirae is a stunning exception within the category of Japanese hollies. A cultivar of the ilex maximowicziana kanehirae species rather than the ilex crenata, this plant is similar to ilex crenata in many ways but has bigger leaves and a quicker growth rate at 25-30cm a year. With its dense, bush habit and faster growing rate these plants are perfect for use as screening and hedging. Alternatively, use the topiary balls to make interesting focal points throughout the garden. This unusual species is the perfect way to make a statement in any garden, adding a stunning classic touch.
