More About Fosteri Holly...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Fosteri holly has a natural, pyramidal form. In late fall the branches are smothered in bright scarlet berries that contrast strikingly with the gray green foliage. And, best of all, these berries persist into winter.

Uses

Fosteri holly is tidy and polished in form making it useful as a specimen. It's dense enough that it works well as a windbreak and the spiny leaves make it a good choice for a barrier hedge. It would also be dramatic lining a drive, clustered about an entryway, or to frame the corners of a taller home or other building.

Culture

Prefers sun to part shade and well drained moist acidic soil. Does not require pruning however responds well to occasional clippping for a more formal appearance.
