    Design IdeasThis great little Holly is a versatile performer. As a native of Florida, it is adapted to the southern states. Its berries are a good choice for bird-friendly gardens. Plant as a divider between beds and borders or to enclose a space filled with seasonal color. This is perhaps the only true Holly to find a natural home in the tropics! Also surprisingly hardy to USDA Zone 3.
