Design IdeasNo pollinator is needed to enjoy the spectacular berries of this Holly. Its foliage makes a perfect backdrop for light-colored plants. Plant as single specimen (gorgeous under snowfall) or line it up for a reliably dense hedge. Use to soften unsightly corners of fences or buildings, or plant at the back of shrub and perennial borders for reliable year-round foliage. Leave unsheared to attain full height and width for screens or to disguise utilities.
