Out of stock


Very dense prickly evergreen, glossy green foliage, tiny white flowers in spring followed by red berries in winter on pollinated female plants.

Ilex aquifolium, commonly known as holly, is a versatile and attractive evergreen shrub that serves as an excellent choice for hedging. Its dense, glossy foliage and distinctive spiky leaves create a visually appealing and impenetrable barrier, offering both privacy and security. Holly’s evergreen nature ensures year-round coverage, adding a touch of vibrancy to the landscape even in the coldest months. Beyond its ornamental value, holly plays a crucial role in supporting wildlife. The berries produced by female holly plants are a valuable food source for birds, especially during the winter when other food options may be scarce. This makes holly an eco-friendly choice for hedging, contributing to the overall biodiversity of the garden or natural setting. Additionally, holly’s dense branches provide shelter and nesting sites for various bird species, enhancing the overall habitat and ecological balance in the environment.
