Holly (Ilex) is an instantly recognisable prickly evergreen shrub or small tree. Though its distinctive red berries and leaves may be associated with winter, Holly makes a fantastic hedging choice that can bring a splash of colour to any garden. We offer a variety of beautiful Holly plant varieties including; Ilex meserveae Blue Princess, Ilex x altaclerensis Golden King, Ilex aquifolium and Ilex aquifolium Argentea Marginata.
Holly’s spiny leaves make it extremely well suited to garden security. The distinctive red berries traditionally appear during the autumn and winter months, and most varieties also develop small white flowers in early spring. Though Holly berries are toxic to humans, wildlife love them. Incorporating a Holly plant into the garden is a very effective way of attracting birds and other wild animals to your garden.
Holly is reasonably slow growing, usually taking between 20-50 years to reach full development. Holly can be planted in direct sunlight and in partial shade, and is also compatible in both acidic and alkaline soil.
It is an extremely hardy species and can adapt to almost any environment, including coastal properties.
