This handsome and versatile male evergreen holly with a natural pyramidal form creates a superb hedge, screen, or windbreak. Dense, glossy, bright green foliage is tolerant of shearing, making it an excellent topiary specimen or formal accent to entryways or gardens. Small cream-colored flowers do not produce berries.

Adapts to a range of soil types; thrives in light, well-drained, acidic soils with consistent moisture. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Fertilize in early spring. For a tidy appearance, prune to shape in winter.
