STYLE
Design Ideas Here is a native deciduous holly that leaves nothing but the berries in the winter - but only if you plant the pollinator too. Plant these as specimens in the landscape where the bright red won't have competition. Great at corners of fences, around woodland gardens or in the all-native landscape with birds in mind.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Green
CARE
Care Adaptable but prefers moist, acidic soils. Follow a regular watering schedule the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Apply a slow-release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune annually to shape.
HISTORY
Lore Humane Society of America notes that Ilex berries can produce a toxic reaction if consumed by pets.
