|Lore||Holly has long been a favorite red berried evergreen for holiday decorating.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow growing; reaches 12 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Exploit the natural symmetry of this well shaped holly for beauty in every season. As a single it makes a large focal point for surrounding planting schemes. Excellent choice for marking corners and accenting curves. As pairs they are particularly useful to flank a driveway entry or front walk. In large tree groves it will stand out in sharp contrast against natural canopy deciduous trees, holding the landscape value in winter. This is an essential to parterres and formal topiary gardens.|
