Ilex Crenata 'Green Luster'-Where to Find?

hawksmoor(z8PNW)June 26, 2005

Anyone know where I can locate three of these plants locally? A landscaper used this particular Âholly for a short hedge in my friendÂs yard (instead of boxwood), and now that he needs to replace some that have died, cannot find any in his nearby nurseries. Wells-Medina said they would order them, but never did.

Or is there a website you trust that he could order from?

Not in 'The Plant Locator', so it may be new and rare in this region. Maybe there is another you could substitute.

It's 'Green Lustre' not "luster" ....LOL

We had some at Bainbridge Gardens for a while when I was working there. The tags on the plants said 'Luster' so it was a big joke for a while. They came from one of our local wholesale plant brokers.

Luster also means shining. I think I've seen this plant too, but don't remember what it looked like, relative to the other cultivars.

You might want to check your local Home Depot. My local HD in Beaverton is selling 1 gallon Ilex Green Lustre for $2.

Thank You Nishamhran! You're going to laugh at me because I also got some at Home Depot last year and forgot that they were actually Ilex and not Boxwood. I will notify my friend ASAP.

If they've spent any length of time at Hope Demote they should be offered as 'Lack Lustre'.
