4ft Ilex Crenata Topiary Spiral

The classic evergreen topiary spiral is perfect for adding an ornate touch to your garden. They work well containers or borders and are a great addition to any door way or path. It forms a dense plant with its small, round green leaves and is easy to grow in most soils. Plants can easily be kept tidy and shaped by regular clipping during the growing season.

Ilex Crenata is a great alternative to Buxus topiary if you are worried about Box Blight or Box Tree Caterpillar as it suffers with neither but is incredibly similar in appearance.
