Hardiness level Green
This form of Holly is just as tough but slightly less prickly of leaf compared with our better known native. Excellent for topiary. Free fruiting red berries.
Sun or light shade and in the ground (if possible). Tough as old boots. Clip regularly.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
