HollyIlex Aquifolium Alaska
When selecting the best holly plants for hedges, it's important to consider plant width. We sell a relatively slim plant which is an excellent choice for a spiky evergreen hedge. A hardier selection of common Holly, its glossy, leathery dark-green leaves are perfect for boundaries.
This holly variety produces small, white flowers in May and June. Red berries will appear in the winter if pollinated by a nearby donor holly tree.
Tolerant of air pollution, holly grows to a maximum height of 8 metres. It is suitable for most soils, either in full sun or part shade.
