Plant Select and Ilex Concepts have entered into an exclusive partnership for the cultivation and sale of Ilex crenata ‘Dark Green’ under the brand name i-LEXIT.

Ilex crenata ‘Dark Green’, an internally developed selection of Plant Select, has shown strong growth as an alternative of Buxus and has become more widely known as an interesting evergreen structural plant with wide-ranging application possibilities.
Plant Select is a worldwide supplier of IN-VITRO planting material and licensing programmes in ornamental horticulture where innovation and sustainability form the ideal breeding ground.


Ilex Concepts, the result of an intensive collaboration between G.C. Stolwijk & Co. from Boskoop and Van Oploo Tuinplanten from Bavel, aimed at structuring the sale and cultivation of Ilex crenata ‘Dark Green’, wishes to offer Ilex crenata ‘Dark Green’ in all possible shapes and sizes to retailers and gardeners, in collaboration with a large group of contract growers. The strength of Ilex Concepts lies mainly in its comprehensive range and the larger numbers involved. This ensures constant availability for gardeners, garden centres as well as the larger retailers.

The popularity of the i-LEXIT brand has shown strong growth in recent years. Plant Select and Ilex Concepts see a bright future in the exclusive anchoring of the Ilex variety and the strong brand name. This cross-pollination ensures a bright future for i-LEXIT as well as Ilex crenata ‘Dark Green’.
