This new dwarf, broadleaf evergreen looks more like a boxwood than an inkberry. A compact, mounded habit has petite. dark green foliage that is much smaller than the typical inkberry leaf. A full habit that keeps its form all the way to the ground. Although a female, it rarely produces fruit. Plant along borders or in mass plantings.
