Compact Inkberry Holly, also known as Ilex glabra 'Compacta,' is a small, evergreen shrub that is native to the eastern United States. It is a popular landscaping plant due to its attractive foliage, compact size, and tolerance for a wide range of growing conditions.
The Compact Inkberry Holly typically grows to a height and width of 3 to 4 feet, and has a dense, rounded growth habit. Its dark green, glossy leaves are small and oval-shaped, and remain on the plant year-round. In the spring, the shrub produces small white flowers, which are followed by black berries that persist into the winter and are attractive to birds.
Compact Inkberry Holly is a hardy and adaptable shrub that can tolerate a wide range of soil types and growing conditions. It is drought-tolerant once established, and can grow in full sun to partial shade. It is also tolerant of salt spray and can be used in coastal landscaping.
One of the advantages of Compact Inkberry Holly is its low-maintenance nature. It requires minimal pruning or shaping to maintain its shape, and is resistant to pests and diseases. It is also a good choice for small gardens, borders, or as a low hedge or foundation planting.Botanical Name: Ilex glabra Compacta
