Botanical Name: Ilex opaca EYE-leks oh-PAK-ah Common Name: American holly Genus: Ilex

This erect, evergreen large shrub or tree reaches 40 to 50 feet in height and 20 to 40 feet wide. Leathery dark green leaves have pointy, scalloped edges.

Use American holly as a specimen tree or in a woodland garden.
Care: Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. Hollies are dioecius, so a few male plants are needed for a female plant to produce berries. Can be kept shrub-like by pruning in the spring. Plant or transplant in spring.
