Deciduous holly great for naturalizing!  Slow-growing, non-fruiting male shrub with glossy leaves that drop early in the fall.  Inconspicuous white flowers bloom for an extended period, making the plant a good pollinator for females, which produce profuse red berries.  Only one male is needed to pollinate many females.  Males can be planted some distance away from females, however, the closer the male is to the female the more chance pollinators will visit both plants.  Prune in early spring if needed.  Susceptible to yellowing of leaves in high pH (alkaline) soils.  Tolerates clay soils, poorly-drained soils, and air pollution.  Attracts butterflies and native bees.

2 gallon pot
