Design Ideas No 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.

Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Snowberry (Symphoricarpus); Azalea (Azalea); Mountain Laurel (Kalmia); Hydrangea (Hydrangea)
CARE
Care Thrives in organically rich, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually to shape.
HISTORY
Lore Holly has long been a favorite red berried evergreen for holiday decorating.
