Holly

 There are several different types of Holly, and even "False Holly" So we seperated them into groups to make it easier to understand.

Blue Prince/Princess

Blue Princess gets lots of bright red berries. Its dark blue/greenn foliage contrast very nicely with its berries. This is the type of holly that you WILL need a pollinator to get the berries.

 

Holly (Japanese)

Japanese holly have very small leaves compared to the "berry hollies". They too get a berry, but it is a very insignificant black one. They are prized more for their foliage which can look alot like a boxwood. They require very little maintenance to keep their shape.

Hoogendorn

Sky Pencil

Sky Pencil is very popular in a formal garden and for flanking a doorway or steps. Requires almost zero trimming. In this area, we recommend Sky Pencil for planting in the ground only, not in containers.
