Straight & Narrow® Japanese Holly

Ilex crenata 'PIIIC-I' PP29,578

Straight & Narrow Japanese Holly in landscape

This Japanese holly is certain to live up to its name. Straight & Narrow is exactly that. With a mature height of 6-8’ and only 2-3’ in width, it’s a wonderful plant to use for small areas where privacy is wanted. This plant has strong branches that remain upright and don’t splay out as it ages or faces the elements. The shiny dark green leaves look nice even through the winter. Destined to become THE columnar Japanese holly for the landscape.
