Product details

Ilex aquifolium J C Van Tol is a smooth leaved cultivar of the popular European Holly, Ilex aquifolium. 

It is a self-fertile, female clone that d won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

This cultivar of Holly, as the name suggests, has glossy dark green leaves that are shiny and almost spineless.  The small, white flowers appear in spring, followed by berries in autumn. 

Being self-pollinating, this cultivar will pollinate itself, producing a reliable and profuse display of red berries on purple stems each autumn. Ilex aquifolium J C Van Tol is a small tree at maturity, producing a crown which has regular, pyramidal form. 

Like all Hollies, this evergreen will tolerate some shade and prefers to be planted in well-drained soil.

J C Van Tol is considered by Barcham to be one of the best green leaved bush Hollies available; we grow them as a feathered, small specimen to make the most of their pretty foliage, vigorous growth and profuse berry display. 

It is perfect for small gardens, where it can be used for low screening, or planted as a specimen in a border for year round interest.

Mature Height: 3-7m
