Ilex crenata Topiary Cloud Tree | Japanese Holly | 120-150cm
Bring the ancient Japanese art of tree pruning to life with this beautiful Ilex crenata cloud tree.
Enjoy continuing to form its unique character and structure with the specialist ties (included with the plant) while learning the deeply satisfying and meditative ancient japanese art of Niwaki. The metal support and a set of elastic ties provided allows you to gently pressure the branches into your intended shape.
Niwaki trees are often used in Japan to create the structure and layout of a garden, carefully pruned and manipulated to establish an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. The trees have developed great cultural and spiritual significance, and Niwaki remains a popular national hobby to this day. Niwaki trees can be manipulated in many different ways; trees can be etched to mimic those struck by lightning with grizzly twisted branches, or pruned to time-honoured perfection for a charmingly well-kept look.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
