Ilex crenata LUXUS® Globe is a stunning appearance with its compact, round shape. It reaches a height of 60 cm and a width of 50 cm. Like Buxus, its leaves are dark green, glossy and flat. Ilex crenata LUXUS® Globe is strong. This shrub is disease-tolerant and winter hardy to -22° Celsius. It keeps its green colour throughout the year, unlike several other Ilex-varieties.
