Product Details

Small specimens of Ilex aquifolium Pyramidalis are 1.25-1.5m tall.

Ilex aquifolium Pyramidalis is an attractive, fast growing, variety of the Common Holly which has won both the RHS Award of Merit and Award of Garden Merit in 1989 and 2002 respectively.

This Holly has bright green, waxy looking foliage which have a largely smooth edge to them.  This cultivar is self-pollinating and is therefore capable of producing a superb crop of bright red berries, even without the presence of a pollinator.  The berries appear in autumn and will be retained upon the tree into the winter, until eaten by wildlife.

As its name suggests, Ilex aquifolium Pyramidalis grows with a compact and pyramidal shaped crown, so long as the central leader is retained.  Like all Hollies, this tree will tolerate some shape and prefers the soil to be free draining.

This super, small evergreen tree is a great choice as a specimen tree in small to medium sized gardens.  This Holly has an upright, triangle shaped crown with a spreading base that gives it an interesting architectural shape that makes this tree a super feature tree; providing year round interest.

Mature Height: 3-7m
