The Needle Point Holly is one of the best holly bushes available. It grows into a tall and broad specimen, with glossy, rich-green leaves that are smooth except for a single spine on the tip. It produces a huge crop of large, bright-red berries even on a single bush. It will grow in exposed areas in full sun, or in partial shade, and it thrives in difficult soils, including alkaline ones. It is also a great seaside choice, since it is resistant to salt spray too. It is pest free and deer avoid the sharp spines. Plant it as a single garden specimen or use it for an attractive screen or trimmed hedge.

  • Handsome glossy evergreen foliage
  • Abundant crop of large red berries
  • Very resistant to poor soils and salt spray
  • Attractive specimen, screen or hedge
  • Fast growing and easily trimmed

The Needle Point Holly is renowned for its ability to thrive in difficult soils, resist salt-spray and grow in harsh locations. Choose a sunny or partially shaded spot to plant it. Once established it has good drought tolerance, and will still produce a huge berry crop even in poor conditions. Do not plant where the spines can be a problem, but equally, unwanted visitors will never push through a hedge or screen of this plant.
