Design IdeasA vigorous grower, this Holly's huge proportions place it in the tree category, either shaped into a spreading semiformal canopy or encouraged to grow vertical as a specimen. Line up several for a durable evergreen windbreak. Both prickly and dense, it's a security barrier and privacy screen. Produces berries if provided a male Chinese Holly.
