Green Lustre is a fantastic variety of Japanese box-leaved holly. This carefree shrub has deep green, glossy, almost flat, healthy leaves. It is low growing, mound-forming, and if you grow several plants together in a few years they will join into one cover of green mounds. It is spine-less and disease-free.

It grows slowly to medium fast (conditions pending). It can be pruned and clipped in almost any way in early spring or by end July. Japanese holly is usually trouble-free, tolerates any soil and can withstand summer dry spells once established. However, for best results and leaf colour grow it in medium fertile, slightly acidic, moist but well-drained soil. Fully hardy to min. -27°C (USDA zone 5b).
