Ilex crenata 'Glorie Dwarf' is a dwarf holly with small dark-green leaves and a naturally ball-shaped habit. Responding well to pruning, it can be used as for all boxwoods: in topiary, as borders or for low hedges. Extremely resistant to cold it favours soils that are rich in humus and which remain cool in summer. It is recommended for use in oceanic and continental climates that remain fresh in summer. For drier climates the compact Pittosporum tenuifolium, « Silver Ball » and « Golden Ball » would be more suitable.
