The native form of English Holly, grown for its versatility, resiliency, and natural beauty. Ilex aquifolium will succeed in many conditions, sun or shade, even industrial and coastal areas, and is easy to grow. It makes a splendid hedge, shrub or tree, but does benefit from regular pruning as its natural growth habit can be a bit leggy. Although the native holly does indeed produce the classic crop of red holly berries, it is not the best choice if this trait is of primary interest; the native plants can be either male or female, difficult to discern, and only females produces berries - and even then only when in proximity of male plants. If a reliable and heavy ornamental crop of berries is desired, we would suggest a female clone such as Ilex 'Nellie R. Stevens'.
