Description

Almost spineless, glossy, dark green leaves on dark purple stems.  It makes a dense, upright tree that is quite slow-growing. Like all common holly varieties, it is a robust plant, ideal for hedges and screens, both inland and by the sea, but also makes a good specimen shrub.

When the plants arrive they can be planted in a well dug over trench with rotted manure or any other organic fertiliser (The plants will grow without doing this,but it gives them a better start).
