Foster Holly is a beautiful evergreen small tree that is unique among hollies for flowering without a second tree to pollinate it. It will grow in sun or partial-shade and it will be smothered in bright red berries all winter long.   This tree will grow to 25 feet as a beautiful specimen tree or it can be planted as an attractive screen, or trimmed into a beautiful dense hedge. The deep-green leaves have small spines on them and they are glossy and healthy-looking all year round. In spring your tree will have small white flowers which develop into the traditional holly berries loved by everyone for the holiday season.

  • The only holly that produces berries on just one plant
  • Dense and healthy evergreen foliage
  • Beautiful specimen tree, screen or hedge
  • Easily grown in sun or partial-shade
  • Grows well in damp soil but also drought-resistant

Plant your Foster Holly Tree in average garden soil, or even in wetter areas. Once established it is drought-resistant and it has no significant pest or diseases. Whether you plant it as a single specimen, or grow a hedge, you can be sure of a big crop of berries every winter. Whether in full sun or partial shade, this is an ideal evergreen for every garden and it is hardy and reliable throughout all but the coldest parts of the country.
