Ilex crenata 'Northern Beauty'

Asked March 9, 2016, 8:24 PM EST

When using ilex crenata for a 30-foot long 'step-over hedge' can I keep it sheared to 2 1/2 to 3 feet high? Also, any information on new disease with this plant? Thanks, Mary Beth

I am not an expert on ornamentals - however some of our Island County Master Gardeners might have more experience with shaping the Japanese Holly to 2-3 feet. Please call our MG hotline at 360-240-5527. Someone will get back with you asap. in the meantime please see:
