Holly ( Ilex ) Tree & Shrub Selections

Holly has a tremendous amount to offer today's home landscaping. There are varieties that produce the classic red holly berries that many of us have come to associate with hollies. But there are many other varieties of holly to consider as well that are not exactly what you would expect to find in a holly, including some varieties that are grown primarily for their beautiful foliage. The O'Spring Holly is among the most colorful hollies we have ever seen.

From lower growing foundation shrubs & hedges, to the tall tree form varieties such as Wirt L. Winn Holly and the extremely popular Nellie Stevens Holly we think you will agree that hollies are a great choice for places you may not have considered them for.
