Ilex glabra – Inkberry Shamrock

Ilex glabra, commonly called inkberry or gallberry, is a slow-growing, upright-rounded, stoloniferous, broadleaf evergreen shrub in the holly family. It typically matures to 5-8’ tall, and can spread by root suckers to form colonies. ‘Shamrock’ is a compact rounded cultivar that grows 3-4′ tall and suckers less than the species.
