Straight & Narrow® Japanese Holly

Ilex crenata 'PIIIC-I' PP29,578

Straight & Narrow® Japanese Holly is a strong, columnar, evergreen shrub that grows 6’ tall and 2-3’ wide; it is an obvious improvement from other cultivars on the market whose branches tend to splay out as they age. Straight & Narrow® has strong branches that remain tightly upright as it ages and faces the elements. Shiny, dark green leaves are flat, not cupped, and remain nice looking through winter.
