History

Holly berries are an extremely valuable food source to birds and other animals. Holly berries are mildly toxic if eaten by humans. Red Beauty requires a male plant nearby in order to set berries. Most male varieties of Ilex meserveae can serve this purpose. This variety can also be pollinized by Ilex aquifolium, Ilex pernyi, or Ilex rugosa.
