Ilex opaca 'Jersey Knight'

The traditional American Holly is a familiar evergreen shrub, native to the Eastern US and easily identifiable by its glossy spiked green leaves and distinct red berries. In garden settings, the slow growth habit allows for pruning and shaping whereas in the wild it forms a pyramid shape, somewhat like a pine and can reach heights of up to 50 feet. 'Jersey Knight' typically grows to 7-8 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide in the first 10 years, but will eventually grow to 20-30 feet tall. 

Ilex are dioecius, meaning the male and female flowers grow on separate plants. In order to produce fruit, you will need to plant a female Ilex within 25-30 feet. Pollinated females produce the well known red berries in the fall and linger well into winter. 'Jersey Knight' is a male cultivar and is considered to be a good pollinator for most female Ilex. 

Ilex prefer moist, organically rich soil and can even tolerate some clay and adapts well to all levels of sun exposure except full shade. 

Arrives to you in a gallon-sized pot.
