Little Rascal holly grows in my secret garden; he was an impulse-buy but he was so darn cute I couldn’t resist. He is round and compact with small evergreen leaves and is very cold hardy, adding a fine texture to the garden in any season. In winter he may develop a deep purple color. He requires little maintenance and will be a pollinizer for other hollies. This is the perfect plant for a small garden that is enjoyed in all seasons.
