Blue Princess Holly

Ilex x meserveae ‘Blue Princess’

This holly’s unique blue-green foliage and purple stems create a lovely backdrop for white and silver colored plants. Plant by itself or line up for a reliably dense hedge. Bright red berries look stunning during a snaowfall. Partner with a male blue holly for pollinating. Leave unsheared to attain full height and width for use as screening or to hide utilities.
