Landscape Notes: Carissa Holly, Ilex cornuta has become widely used in the recommended zones, primarily as a substitute for the overplanted ‘Rotunda’. It has the same culture and growth habit as ‘Rotunda’, but is less hazardous to plant and maintain. Carissa Holly has dense growth and superior foliage which makes this an ideal foundation plant or low hedge.


Exposure/Culture: Carissa Holly, Ilex cornuta will thrive in full sun or partial shade. Tolerates a wide range of conditions and soil types, except wet soils. Carissa Holly is very heat and drought resistant and requires a minimum of pruning to shape.


Other Notes: Carissa Holly, Ilex cornuta is an ideal evergreen shrub for foundation plantings, low hedges, mass plantings, shrub borders, and can be used to control erosion problems. This versatile plant is a must for landscapes. Along with being heat and drought resistant it is also deer, disease, and mildew resistant!
