Design Ideas: This beautiful little holly provides outstanding low growing bright green foliage to gardens. Size makes it a problem solver for small gardens needing a solid evergreen structural shrub. Excellent for neatening up the front of shrub borders and foundation planting. Use in irregular groups for naturalistic planting schemes or line up as an informal edging. Ideal for pots and troughs and raised planters.

Thrives in enriched, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soils. 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

Holly was named Ilex after a prickly leaf European oak, Quercus ilex. Holly and oaks were both sacred plants to the ancient Celts who honored holly for retaining its foliage through winter. It was believed that the spirits of vegetation were strongest in evergreen plants and therefore brought into homes for winter blessings from nature.
