Ilex aquifolium AlaskaSold Out
Ilex (Holly) 'Alaska' is a handsome shrub with glossy prickly edged foliage and, as it is female will have many attractive red berries in the autumn. Whilst self fertile it will berry even better if there is a male holly somewhere in the vicinity. Very slow growing, this shrub or small tree may eventually reach 5m or more in height, but it will stay narrowly pyramid shaped usually having a width of less than a metre. Extremely winter hardy this variety will thrive in sun or partial shade in almost any conditions except very wet.
