A large tree with attractive, corrugated bark and leathery evergreen leaves. It takes its name from Ilex which is the Latin name for holly. The leaves are glossy, dark green above and pale whitish-grey with dense short hairs below. Edible acorns in autumn. Slow growing and tolerant of regular pruning. Left to develop naturally, will eventually form a very large tree. Thrives in all well-drained soils. Fully Hardy.
This magnificent multi-stem specimen measures approximately 3.5metres tall.
Each piece on the Nursery Park is so very individual and in lots of cases they are shaped in a specific way that the usual description of plants is not relevant so we let the images do the talking.
