Brass Buckle® Japanese Holly. Spring Meadow Nurseries says of this selection: "Cute as a button, this diminutive, finely textured Japanese holly shines all year long with glossy, clear yellow, burn resistant foliage. Perfect for patio containers, edging walks and borders or for mass planting." I didn't think that this selection would take our Deep South heat, but it has done fabulously. Our customers have fallen in love with it. We sold out of our first crop in a matter of a couple of weeks. Plant in full sun for the most intense color. It is not particular as to soil as long as one has good drainage.
