The Inkberry holly is a native evergreen shrub that may grow up to 10 feet but it's usually maintained at a desired size, about 2 feet. This evergreen likes full to partial sun and can easily be maintained by cutting back the branches at anytime of the year. It is particularly useful in dry conditions or where nature plants are desired. Inkberry holly produces small, purple-black berries on its twigs but it the twigs are mostly covered with leaves. It is most commonly used as a hedge or border plant. This plant is part of the nature vegetation at the edge of Ring Road near parking lot 17-13 and can also be found at then entrance garden to campus. It's hardy in zones 5 Ð 9.
