Foster Holly (Ilex Opaca x attenuata 'Fosteri'), also known as Foster's No. 2 Holly, is a compact evergreen tree with bright red berries and glossy green foliage. Foster Holly trees add year-round interest to any landscape and their fruit attracts birds well into winter.

The Foster Holly's glossy dark green leaves pair beautifully with the tree's small white flowers that bloom in the spring. The flowers are insignificant though in comparison the the plants' gorgeous red fruits that grow in the winter.

Foster Holly is extremely rare in the way that their female plants produce fruit without fertilization from a male pollinator. Where most all fruiting plants require a male present to produce fruits. the Foster Holly is an independent fruiting tree.

These impressive Holly trees have a relatively moderate growth rate and can reach an average of 15 feet tall and 12 feet wide at maturity. Ideal conditions for these winter interest trees include full sun and well draining soils. Hollies are fairly hardy though and will tolerate some partial shade.

When planted in dense rows, hollies make excellent windbreakers. Holly Trees are well-loved for their ornamental foliage and make beautiful wreaths at Christmas. These stunning trees are also excellent for use as privacy screens and hedges, but also make wonderful specimen trees.
