Common Name: holly/european holly
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade, Shade
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Dry
Spacing: 3 Plants Per Metre
An evergreen tree growing to 10-25 m tall and 40-80 cm (rarely 1 m or more) trunk diameter, with smooth grey bark. The leaves are 5-12 cm long and 2-6 cm broad, variable in shape; on young plants and low branches, with three to five sharp spines on each side, pointing alternately upward and downward; on higher branches of older trees with few or no spines except for the leaf tip, often entire.
The flowers are white, four-lobed, and pollinated by bees. The fruit is a red berry 6-10 mm diameter, containing four pits; although mature in late autumn, they are very bitter so are rarely touched by birds until late winter after frost has made them softer and more palatable.
Good value, prompt despatch and delivery, good quality plants, well packed. Nothing not to like. I've used this site before and will do so again.
