Compact Japanese Holly is a carefree evergreen  shrub with a rounded habit and small dark green spineless leaves on stems that emerge purple and mature to green.  If pollinated, the inconspicuous flowers in spring give way to small black fruits in fall which lasts through winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.
