Ilex Shilling (Ilex Vomitoria’nana’). The photo shows the actual tree for sale. This is a very developed tree. It was training in ground for close to two years. The branches are highly ramified and this tree will be able to be shown shortly. I’ve left every option open and there are three or more very solid fronts and will be an excellent addition to any collection. The price reflects many hours of wiring and pruning to create this tree and the raw quality. Measurements: Height: 25″ Width: 18″ Trunk Diameter: 5″ Nebari (root spread): 11″. Ships semi bare root. 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.
