Introducing the Ilex Cornuta Chinese Holly, a slow-growing evergreen shrub with beautiful shiny dark green leaves that form a dense, rounded crown. With attractive gray bark and berries in various shades of red that last long into winter, it is no wonder it is valued for both its ornamental and medicinal qualities. This plant is used in traditional medicine for treating arthritis, recurring fever in pulmonary tuberculosis, tubercular lymph nodes, joint pains, and lumbago. The Ilex Cornuta is a parent of many sought-after cultivars, including 'Burfordii,' 'Dazzler,' and 'Dwarf Burfordii.' It is tolerant of many soil types and grows well in both sun and shade. Heightening only up to 3 meters, the Ilex Cornuta will make a stunning addition to any garden or landscape. Get your hands on this botanical gem and reap its numerous benefits!
