I have the Japanese 'Hoogendorn' holly planted in several locations and love it for its natural looking and low spreading form (2 1/2 x 4 approx on plants that have been in the ground awhile.)

Multiple stems support a rounded mass of small broad boxwood-like leaves. Attractive little globular mounding shrub, supposedly can reach to 4', but tends to be compact, spreading wider rather than taller. Very suscepticle to Black Root Rot. Cultivar sometimes spelled 'Hoogendoorn'
