The China Girl Holly is an evergreen bush with excellent cold hardiness, that carries big crops of red berries. It naturally has a symmetrical and dense form, and top-rated foliage, with the classic rich-green look of the best holly bushes. It grows between 8 and 10 feet tall, so it’s a good choice for smaller gardens, and excellent in foundation planting around your home or grown as a solid hedge.

  • Full of beautiful red berries in fall and winter
  • Excellent dark green foliage
  • Naturally dense and symmetrical
  • Very hardy and grows well in zone 5
  • Tough, reliable and deer-resistant

The China Girl Holly is reliably hardy in zone 5 and will grow with a little care in zone 4 as well. It grows best in sun or partial shade, and too much shade will reduce the berry crop. Grow it in any richer garden soil that is well-drained. For a good berry crop a male bush, such as the China Boy Holly, should be grown within 100 feet of your bushes.
