Ilex pedunculosa (female)

Longstalk Holly

This holly is a small to medium size evergreen tree native to eastern Asia. The leaves are not spiny and more like Kalmia than "Holly-like".  It is noteworthy as a beautiful but slow growing tree that is one of the hardiest evergreen hollies with red fruit  The berries are borne on long pedicels on female trees. Dr. Michael Dirr in his Manual of Woody Landscape Plants says: "...should be used more than it is; apparently not well-known; to me this is the most handsome of the evergreen hollies that can be grown in northern gardens."
