|Lore||Unlike most hollies, Oak Leaf™ Holly contains both male and female flower parts in each flower. Therefore, each plant is self-fruitful without need for a male plant to provide pollen. The small, greenish-white flower clusters produce pea-sized berries that are orange-red and persist through most of the winter.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Fast growing; reaches 14 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage and ornamental berries.|
|Design Ideas||This upright growing holly has leaves that are bronze to burgundy as they emerge in spring and retain this coloration for a couple of weeks in early spring.|
|Garden Style||Contemporary, Rustic|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Mass Planting, Privacy Screen, Specimen, Topiary, Windbreak, Woodland Garden, Wildlife Garden, Urban Garden|
