Prefers moist, acidic soils. Prune to shape in late winter.
Unlike other I. glabra, this dwarf variety maintains its good branching all the way to the ground. It is an excellent alternative to boxwood. It has dark green evergreen foliage with attractive red tips during the spring flush. Use this adaptable native plant as a small hedge or a container specimen.
