Plant Highlights

This holly bush has beautiful bell-shaped white flowers that appear in the spring. Reminiscent of traditional English holly it also has gorgeous red berries that are also edible. Though it is a slow growing plant it tolerates clay soil as well as rocky soil. It would make a great addition to a bird garden not just for its flowers but also its beautiful edible berries.
