Dwarf Chinese Holly


Although it is smaller than the typical Chinese Holly, the Dwarf Chinese Holly still maintains the spiny leaves usually associated with hollies. Although it does not produce as many berries as the full size version, the small size makes this beautiful plant ideal for smaller areas looking to be improved by a hedge, or even as a perimeter plant.
