Noteworthy Characteristics

Mary Nell holly has some of the prettiest foliage and berries of any holly, which is saying quite a lot. The word shiny doesn't quite convey the beauty of these leaves...and these lustrous leaves maintain their attractiveness year-round.

Uses

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. No pruning necessary however can be clipped to a more formal shape.
