Looking for a screening hedge to replace Cryptomeria and box woods that are not doing well. You suggested the Emerald Colonnade Holly and I wondered if this was one. If not, what is it? The leaf is from a different holly. Do you recognize it? Which would make a better screen on a narrow patch of land between a short brick wall and a concrete driveway. Thank you.

    Checkout the included link below for image of ‘Emerald Colonnade Holly’. To my eyes it doesn’t look like the plant in question. It’s hard to tell without seeing the rest of the plant. I’m guessing something in the American holly (Ilex opaca) perhaps? Not able to see the size & layout of the landscape, it would be hard to recommend suitable plants. Another Japanese holly (Ilex crenata) narrow form cultivar ‘Sky Pencil’ Best wishes! Link for ‘Emerald Colonnade Holly’
