This unique holly, sometimes called the SIlver Hedgehog holly, is a "Great Plant Pick". It features a beautiful creamy band around the each leaf. New shoots are an attractive purple, contrasting the older foliage. It's a full size holly, but can be kept smaller with pruning. Easy to grow. A male, so it won't spread into the wild.
Extraordinary selection that does not have a feature less than perfect. Distinctly spaced white teeth march along the wide silver-white margin which surrounds the green center of the leaf. The dark purplish stems seem to make the white whiter and the green greener. A compact variety, this will get to 6'-8' in 10 years or so. This is a female clone so if you want the copious display of red berries, you will need one of those useless males.
Seed-grown, unsexed plants of this very cold hardy zone 5 evergreen Holly from Japan and China. These are too young to flower so we can't say if you are getting male or female and both are needed for fruit. The red fruit is held on long stems or peduncles and gives the effect of bunches of small cherries.
