The Variegated English Holly is an upright evergreen bush that grows quickly to be 15 feet tall, maturing to a tree as much as 40 feet tall. It is also excellent for growing in planters and pots, where it will be much smaller, to decorate the entrance of your home for the holidays. Branches can be cut to make wreaths, and the classic look of this great plant wins everyone’s heart. In fall and winter large crops of bright red berries form, adding to its beauty and later providing winter food for local birds. Grow it in pots, on a lawn, in garden beds, under trees or as a hedge – everywhere it is beautiful.

  • Beautiful glossy leaves of green with a white border
  • Vibrant, colorful plant for pots or the garden
  • Big crop of red berries through fall and winter
  • New leaves are tinted pink
  • Very tolerant of shade

The Variegated English Holly is very shade tolerant, and it will grow anywhere from full sun to full shade beneath trees. It grows well and quickly in any ordinary well-drained soil. Avoid very dry or very wet soils. It is hardy from zone 6, growing best in moderate climates, including coastal areas, where it is very tolerant of salt-spray. It normally has no pests or diseases, and deer leave it alone. Feed potted trees regularly in spring and summer. Trim in summer when you can see the berries developing, to avoid cutting them off.
