(Inkberry Holly) Do you love the look of Boxwood but have trouble growing them? GEM BOX®, an Inkberry Holly, is the perfect alternative. Standing 2-3 foot tall and wide, this compact broad leaf evergreen forms a dense ball shaped mound. GEM BOX® has dainty, dark green evergreen foliage that will show burgundy colors on the new growth. It displays great all-around branching, so the foliage appears completely from the ground up. Consider using GEM BOX® as a border, small hedge, in mass, or in container design use. In full sun to part shade locations with moist acidic soil is where GEM BOX® grows best. This deer resistant shrub is a PROVEN WINNERS®® COLORCHOCIE® Flowering Shrub.
