Plant Description:

Ilex aquifolium, also known as holly, is a species of holly native to western and southwestern Europe, northwest Africa, and parts of southwest Asia. It is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows to a height of 10-20 feet. The leaves are glossy and dark green, with spiky edges. The plant produces small white flowers in the spring, followed by bright red berries in the fall and winter. The berries are an important food source for birds and other wildlife. Ilex aquifolium is hardy in USDA zones 5-9 and is often used as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes. It is also popular as a Christmas plant due to its bright red berries and shiny leaves.

Growing tips:


Ilex aquifolium is relatively easy to care for, and can thrive in a variety of soil types as long as they are well-draining. It prefers partial shade to full sun and can tolerate drought conditions once established. However, it will grow best if it is watered regularly and kept in moist, but well-draining soil. In the winter, it is important to protect the plant from harsh winds and freezing temperatures. Mulching around the base of the plant can help to insulate the roots and maintain soil moisture.

Fertilize Ilex aquifolium in the spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer, following the instructions on the package. Prune the plant in the late winter or early spring to shape it and remove any damaged or diseased branches. Be sure to wear gloves when pruning holly, as the leaves and branches have sharp spines.

Ilex aquifolium is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it can be susceptible to scale insects, mites, and leaf spot. If you notice any of these issues on your plant, treat them promptly with an appropriate insecticide or fungicide.



Ilex aquifolium, or holly, has several benefits as a garden plant. It is an attractive evergreen shrub or small tree that provides year-round interest with its glossy, spiky leaves and bright red berries. The plant is also popular as a Christmas decoration due to its festive appearance.

In addition to its ornamental value, Ilex aquifolium has several ecological benefits. The plant is an important food source for birds and other wildlife, particularly during the winter months when other food sources may be scarce. Holly bushes provide shelter and nesting sites for birds, and the berries are a valuable source of nutrition. The plant is also beneficial for bees, as the flowers provide nectar for them to feed on.

Ilex aquifolium is also a good choice for gardens because it is relatively easy to care for and is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. It is hardy in USDA zones 5-9 and can thrive in partial shade to full sun, as well as in a variety of soil types. The plant is generally resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance choice for gardeners.
