Those smooth, dark-green leaves shine in the sunlight, sometimes making the colour appear lighter and adding a reflective texture to a landscape. Small, white flowers herald the beginning of spring but will wilt and give way to clusters of bright red berries in Autumn. An attractive screening plant, this hardy evergreen can also be trimmed into a formal hedge. Grows to 4 x 2 m.
Suitable for: Topiary, formal and feature planting, hedging and screening.
Features: Dark green smooth leaf, clusters of red berries over winter.
Botanical Name: ILEX altaclerensis Hendersonii
