Gem Box Inkberry Holly from Proven Winners ColorChoice is a fantastic evergreen shrub that has dark green foliage with attractive red tips when the leaves first start to grow in the spring. These actually look closer to a boxwood than a holly shrub. This shrub also produces berries throughout late fall and winter. This plant is a best seller.

These dwarf bushes are only 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. Plant these in a location that receives at least 4 hours of sunlight a day. These are very low maintenace shrubs that are perfect for garden planters. These are winter hardy in zones 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b, 9a, 9b.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty whether you’re new or an expert.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant purchase.

    I Love it. Thanks to the sturdy packaging it arrived in very good condition with moist soil & dark green foliage. I was also pleasantly surprised that it arrived at my house as quickly as it did. It was a little smaller than I expected but still gave it 5 stars since I took into account how easy it was to order.
