One of the most attractive of all hollies! Vigorous growing with a broad pyramidal tree-like form, dense branching, and lustrous, dark green, leathery foliage. An excellent hedge, screen, or specimen. Produces large, bright orange-red berries without a male pollenizer; plant with a male Chinese Holly (Ilex cornuta) for increased berry set. Evergreen.
Average Size at Maturity Quickly reaches 15 to 25 ft. tall, 10 to 15 ft. wide.
Bloom Time Inconspicuous; prized for foliage and berries.
Design Ideas A vigorous grower, this Holly's huge proportions place it in the tree category, either shaped into a spreading semi-formal canopy or encouraged to grow vertical as a specimen. Line up several for a durable evergreen windbreak. Both prickly and dense, it's a security barrier and privacy screen. Produces berries if provided a male Chinese Holly.
