This female plant has lustrous dark green leaves and if pollinated by a male, will produce black fruit during the fruiting season. The plants also produce small white flowers in the spring.

The Inkberry Hollies work great in foundation plantings, as well as in shrub borders and low hedges. Plant these evergreen shrubs as a backdrop for shorter flowering plants to add variation and depth to a garden. The dark green foliage makes the flowers of companion plants stand out.
