Buy Ilex aquifolium 'Silver Queen' English holly (Male): Striking cream and green leaves

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spiny, lustrous, dark green leaves with broad, creamy-white margins on dark purple stems. Contrary to expectations this slow-growing, variegated, evergreen holly is a 'male' variety that doesn't produce any berries. An attractive specimen tree for small, sunny gardens, particularly those in urban or coastal areas.
  • Garden care: Plants grown as free-standing specimens require minimal pruning - remove diseased or misplaced branches in spring. Trim plants grown as formal hedges in late summer. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant
