Ilex Crenata Bonsai From Herons Bonsai

Ilex crenata or Japanese Holly makes a fine indoor bonsai as it is a semi-hardy plant in temperate climates.

They have small glossy leaves which are evergreen and trim up into nice shapes when clipped.

They prefer cool rather than excessively warm conditions indoors. Like all indoor bonsai, they benefit from being kept outdoors in the summer.

This is a challenging species - can be difficult for beginners.
