American Holly 'Selected Red'

Ilex opaca, the familiar American Holly, is a medium size evergreen tree with spines on the margins and tips of the tough leathery leaves and red berries on the female plants. It is widespread in eastern U.S. on well-drained woodland sites and a widely cultivated ornamental. Seedlings are highly variable and selected named clones are much better as ornamentals. This is an outstanding clone we propagated from a group planted many years ago here in Aiken, South Carolina. It is a dense pyramidal slightly weeping form, it may be the variety 'Croonenburg'. It has very good foliage and abundant bright red berries.
