Ilex aquifolium (Pleached)

10259 - English holly
A beautiful and useful native evergreen extremely well adapted for the British climate. Tolerates a wide range of site conditions, including industrial and coastal areas. The plant benefits from regular pruning as its natural growth habit can be somewhat 'leggy'. The foliage is dark green and spiny - the quintessential holly leaf. This wild form of holly does produce the classic holly berry, but not on all plants or always in great abundance. The plant can come in either male or female forms, not easy to discern, but only the females produce berries, then only when in proximity of males. If an abundance of ornamental berries in winter is desired, opt for a cultivated female variety such as 'Nellie R. Stevens' and avoid trimming in late summer. Flat far-reaching roots.
