Zones 5-8 Sun to shade
Dwarf Pagoda grows in to a natural bonsai. Known previously as Ilex crenata 'Nummularia',
because the leaves are round like coins
("nummularia"), and have a light green halo at the edge
after new growth.
Very tight internodal growth and irregular habit make it a natural for bonsai.
Slow grower reaching only 5' tall after 25 years.
