This choice dwarf selection of native holly, ‘Micron’ is extremely durable and flourishes in a wide range of conditions ranging from sun to shade and from wet to dry soils. More compact than the typical evergreen dwarf yaupon, ‘Micron’ holly has a characteristic mounding or pillowing habit that makes this shrub distinctive in the landscape. Slow growing so it never needs pruning, ‘Micron’ reaches a mature height of only 20 to 30 inches and a wider spread of 3 feet.
‘Micron’ holly is an exceptionally versatile garden performer because, although it is tolerant of wet soils, it is also very drought resistant. This makes it an ideal landscape plant in temperate U.S. gardens for a multitude of uses, including small hedges, garden borders, edging, foundation plantings and massed on slopes. Prized for its slow rate of growth, pruning or shearing is never necessary.
