Ilex decidua 'Finch's Golden'

Possumhaw Holly, 'Finch's Golden'

Possumhaw is a deciduous holly that can be a shrub or small tree. It is native on bottomlands and moister upland sites in the southeastern U.S. It is better adapted to high pH soils than Ilex verticillata. Female plants produce abundant crops of showy red berries which hold well through the winter on the bare branches. The plant normally has red berries but this selection by Bill Finch of Mobile, AL has bright yellow fruit. Can be pollenated by male Ilex opaca but best to plant a male Ilex decidua nearby.
