Blue Prince Holly for Sale Online
The Blue Prince Holly (Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Prince') is a beautiful broadleaf evergreen shrub that makes for a gorgeous landscape interest year-round. These winter hardy shrubs have beautiful dark blue-green leaves that emerge on dark purple stems.
As a male holly, your Blue Prince will likely need a Princess to produce the plants' renowned bright red berries. As if written for the story books--your Holly's perfect match is the Blue Princess Holly. These Male and Female Hollies work together to pollinate and produce berries beyond your wildest dreams.
One male holly shrub can pollinate up to five female hollies. On the other hand, the Blue Prince is a good choice for those that want to enjoy year-round green foliage but don't want the berries that are often displayed on other hollies in the winter.
Although this Blue Holly is beloved for its foliage and berry production, it also produces inconspicuous white flowers in the spring. While these plants can grow in full sun, it is best to plant this shrub in an area that receives afternoon shade for optimal growth. Additionally, these plants enjoy well-drained soils and regular watering. This popular plant is suited for USDA zones 5-9.
Growing up to 10 feet tall and wide, this evergreen shrub can make a fantastic privacy screen when planted in mass. These winter interest shrubs are also often used in border plantings and hedges.
