Ilex aquifolium ( Common holly )

is a versatile evergreen shrub with prickly, twisted, glossy dark green leaves that are instantly recognisable. It is a useful, slow growing variety which can be grown as a specimen tree or clipped bush with lovely, bright red berries from late autumn to mid-winter. Perfect for using as intruder-proof hedging for security and around boundaries, it has a dense growth habit and is not fussy about soil type of situation, thriving in dense shade as well as full sun. Hedges should be trimmed in spring and specimen shrubs in summer. It can be cut back drastically if necessary without harming the plant.
