Inkberry

Plant Type:

BROADLEAF EVERGREEN SHRUBS

Ilex glabra f. leucocarpa ‘Ivory Queen’ – This is a very nice white-fruited form of Inkberry adorning the very dense flush of leathery, dark green foliage. Berries are sometimes flushed with a bit of pink. Prune in late winter/early spring to engender a shorter, denser shrub. Full to part sun in fertile moisture retaining soil. Our shrubs are multistemmed, flowering and fruiting - not itsy bitsy fingerlings! Cutting grown.
