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 organically rich, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune 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.

Fabulous Plant
by Ridgefield Nan, August 11, 2018

Needed evergreen plants for the front of our house. Problem, stone facing and late afternoon full sun. This plant has done beautifully, maintains a neat appearance with little pruning, and has the bonus of spring flowers and winter color. I highly recommend.
