Description

Common Holly is a large evergreen shrub or tree, with dark-green, shiny leaves with a wavy texture and spines. It can be grown as a specimen tree, hedge, or clipped bush. The holly can be male or female, however it is very hard to identify the differences between them. Both male and female sexes must be present to produce winter berries which appear from late Autumn to mid-Winter. If left, Holly can grow up to a height of 9m and will tolerate most soil types.
