Ilex crenata 'MAD-IC-I' PP32,035
Chubby Hubby™ Ilex is best described as Ernie to Straight & Narrow® Japanese Holly’s Bert, with similar leaves and strong upright branches yet it is considerably wider and more oval in habit than its counterpart. The dad-bod features of this holly are perfectly suited for evergreen hedging, replacing boxwoods and other evergreens that are plagued by diseases, insects, or are weak stemmed. Leaves are flat, do not cup, and remain a shiny dark green all winter. Male. Bred by Dr. Michael Dirr at the University of Georgia.
