Often mistaken for common box (Buxus sempervirens) this fully hardy shrub from Japan is covered in small, dark green evergreen leaves. Very amenable to be being clipped and pruned it can be used as a low hedging plant or for topiary and, critically, it is entirely unaffected by box blight, should you be so unfortunate as to have that in the garden. Ilex crenata 'Dark Green' will grow to a height of 1-2m depending on the pruning regime.
