Compact Inkberry Growing and Maintenance Tips

Inkberry grow best in a slightly acidic, slightly moist, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. 'Compacta' makes an excellent evergreen hedge, as it prunes well. Will tolerate a wet soil and one, male, inkberry plant will effectively pollinate up to six, female plants.
