Holly (Short Standard) JC van Toll in a 35lt pot
These are short standard lollipop hollies designed to give architectural design to gardens. They are a selected variety of Ilex aquifolium known as JC van Toll which has less aggressive spikes on its leaves and is a self fertile variety of holly so will normally produce more red berries than standard English Holly.
Holly (Ilex Aquifolium) is also known as Common Holly or English Holly and is a very traditional hedging plant having been cultivated for many centuries and being native to the UK. It can be clipped into a dense and prickly formal hedge or allowed to grow more informally. It can also be cut back heavily to rejuvenate an older hedge.
With its prickly green foliage and vibrant red berries, Holly is synonymous with making Christmas wreaths and other festive decorations.
Wild birds favour Holly for nesting sites and its berries are a useful additional food source in the colder months.
Holly is not the fastest growing hedge plant and one can expect 6-9 inches of growth a year.
Holly is tolerant of most soil types although it does not like waterlogged soil. It also grows quite happily in full sunshine and also in partial shade.
More information about planting a large Holly hedge can be found on the Holly hedging category page.
