Rock Garden Holly

Botanical name: Ilex x ‘Rock Garden’


The Rock Garden Holly is a great choice for Bonsai due to it's extremely dwarf habit getting no larger than a foot tall. They have shiny, deep green leaves and a dense, globose habit. Red berries cover the plant in the fall


Checking watering daily is important for Holly because you can overwater them just as easy as you can underwater them.

Hardy Bonsai material needs to be wintered over in a protected cold spot so that they can go through their natural dormancy period.  Inside an unheated garage, cold frame, or bury in the ground with good insulation for the roots.
