American Holly Trees (Ilex opaca), also known as White Holly or Christmas Holly, are beautiful, fast-growing holly evergreen trees that keep their vibrant deep green, leathery leaves and bright red berries through the winter.

The red glow of the berries contrasts well against the dark green foliage and makes a beautiful ornamental tree. Birds love the berries and will be attracted to your landscape during the winter. An added enjoyable element of the American Hollies is the small white flowers that emit a pleasant aroma.

The evergreen Holly Tree is dioecious meaning separate trees will have either male or female flowers, but not both. For dioecious plants to produce berries, a male cultivar must be near a female plants so that pollinators can do their work.

Native to the rich bottomlands and swamp margin areas of the eastern and central U.S., the American Holly grows best in moist atmospheres and a loamy, acidic well draining soil. This tree grow best in conditions of full sun and happily tolerates harsh winter winds.

The elegant plant not only provides a pleasant view to onlookers, but also works to provide nectar for pollinators. Holly Trees make great privacy hedges for their large pyramidal shape and ability to remain a lush green year-round.

Additionally, people often use Holly Trees as foundation plantings. The American Holly adds a festive touch to any outdoor space throughout the winter holidays.
