Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Princess'

'Blue Princess' Holly

Broad, upright, evergreen shrub; eventually matures to 4-6′ tall by 4-6′ wide. Dark purplish stems and glossy, blue-green leaves with spiny-toothed margins. Tiny, whitish flowers appear in spring; relatively inconspicuous. Fertilized female flowers give way to abundant, dark red fruit that persists throughout the winter. One male is needed for every 3-4 females for best fruit set. Hollies benefit from winter protection.
