Design Ideas: Use this plant as a groundcover to block weeds over large areas of the garden. Neatens up edges of planters along walks, paths and lawn. Covers up unattractive open spaces between trees and larger old shrubs that have lost their lower leaves. Superior cover up for mortar, plastic and utilities around the edges of water garden. Great problem solver for rocky ground where this holly carpets spaces between rock outcroppings.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.

History

Linnaeus gave this genus the name Ilex after the holly oak of Europe (Quercus ilex) even though these plants are not related.
