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.

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.

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.
