The Wirt L. Winn Holly grows naturally into a near-perfect pyramid, between 20 and 30 feet tall in time, with a spread of no more than 10 feet. It has dense branching and needs no trimming to retain its compact, bushy form right to the ground. The large, dark-green leaves are edged in handsome spines, and the unusually large berries that crowd the branches in winter are brilliant red. This variety is known for its heavy berry crops. Grow it as a lawn specimen, a screen, at the back of shrub beds, or among large deciduous trees – it is gorgeous anywhere.

  • Perfect specimen shrub for a lawn or screening
  • Bold, rich-green leaves edges in spines
  • Big crop of unusually large bright-red berries
  • Very reliable in hot and dry conditions
  • Sterile and non-invasive

The Wirt L. Winn Holly grows in sheltered parts of zone 6 and in all the warmer zones, enjoying heat and humidity that other types often don’t thrive in. It will grow equally well in full sun or partial shade, in any well-drained soil. Water regularly when young, but mature trees have good resistance to summer drought. It isn’t bothered by pests or diseases, and deer avoid it.
