Ilex sp. 'Cherry Bomb'

Holly, Cherry Bomb

This lovely hybrid holly with exceptionally large red berries is probably a hybrid between the popular 'Nellie Stevens' and the Mochi Holly (Ilex integra) which we believe was an unreleased selection from the U.S. National Arboretum.  It was shared with us a few years ago by Dr. Dave Creech at the Stephen F. Austin arboretum in Nacogdoches, Texas.   It is now on the market having apparently been released by Greenleaf Nursery in North Carolina.   The dark green dense foliage, big red berries, and relatively small size make this a choice landscape plant.
