Japanese Holly hedging (Ilex crenata) description

Ilex crenata (dark green) forms a wonderful evergreen hedge with an abundance of small, rounded, glossy leaves and a very dense and bushy habit.

It wasn't clear whether the Ilex crenata are the 'Dark green' cultivar or not. The product information mentioned 'Dark green', but it didn't appear on any titles in the website or on the label attached to the plant. They all look like very good quality and genetically similar plants anyway, which is important as I'm growing them into balls.
