Ilex Shilling (Ilex Vomitoria’nana’). The photo shows the actual tree for sale. The result is the very rough bark and beautiful tapering and shape. I simply cannot replace these so the price is set. These have all been root pruned and pruned for trunk line and branch structure. Some Ilex haven been thinned out more to get rid of the cluster cuss and so you can see what branches you have to work with. Measurements: Height: 6″ Width: 7″ Trunk Diameter: 2″ Nebari (root spread): 4.5″. This tree ships semi bare root – loose soil is gently worked away and the rootball is plastic wrapped. Keep outside only- full sun is best. Ilex Schillings is a Florida native that produces excellent bonsai material. The small leaves and dwarf habit of this variety produce great character and proportion. Ilex Schillings are also very cold and drought hardy while withstanding serious root and top pruning making them great for bonsai cultivation. The dwarf variety typical is kept as a small hedge but with age can grow to over 10′. At one point in history, Ilex Vomitoria was a very popular tea; not to mention the weeping variety has more caffeine than coffee.
