In the Garden
This compact deciduous holly reaches up to 3m tall with equal or greater spread. Pale yellow berries ripen in March and stand out on reddish-brown branches, persisting into early winter and attracting birds.
Best grown in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil. The tree is adaptable to wet soils and grows best in a sunny position. Only female plants produce fruit, so it is best to grow several plants to be sure of getting a female.
