|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established.

|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.|
