Hardy, glossy, native evergreen hedge. Holly is a shrub or small tree with glossy evergreen leaves and bright red berries. Sometimes used in a stock-proof hedge, it takes clipping and laying well, and can be used as a very tough hedge or allowed to grow into a small tree. Small flowers in early summer are scented, and very attractive to bees. Holly provides great shelter and food for birds. It grows very well under taller trees such as oak, and is a very tough and resilient plant. Container grown plants, 9cm pot, 30-40cm tall plants. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.
