Ilex cornuta 'O'Spring'
Plant Facts & Specifications
A very beautiful variegated form of Chinese Holly with olive green foliage that is very heavily splashed & margined with bright, creamy yellow. New growth takes on just a slight purplish tinge. Has a somewhat irregular upright growth habit. O'Spring is a male clone so do not expect berries on this holly, but the foliage is absolutely wonderful!! Leaf shape is the typical Chinese Holly shape. This holly does best in partial shade, but will accept full sun as well. Works great as a specimen planting for semi shaded areas.
