The Centennial Girl Holly is an outstanding hybrid holly that has the best features of the English holly, but is much more cold resistant. It carries a profuse crop of bright-red berries that persist through winter, and it has a natural pyramidal habit that needs little or no trimming to look perfect. Growing to 15 feet tall and 8 feet wide, it is ideal for lawn specimens, hedges, screening and planting in open woodlands. The small thorns lie flat, so they don’t snag clothing the way English holly does.

  • Profuse crop of red berries lasts all winter
  • Natural pyramidal habit for specimens or screening
  • Smoother leaves mean the thorns don’t snag clothing
  • Similar to, but much more cold-resistant than English holly
  • Pollinated by ‘Blue Prince’ and by most male hollies

Full sun to partial-shade is perfect for the Centennial Girl Holly. Plant it in rich, well-drained soil that is moist but not swampy. It grows in most types of soil, with a slight preference for acidic soil. It is resistant to holly leaf miner, as well as the diseases anthracnose and tar spot. A male tree like ‘Blue Prince’ is needed for a good berry crop.
