More about Liberty Holly...

Noteworthy Characteristics

The evergreen holly Liberty™ (‘Conty’) is a care-free large shrub to small tree with a dense, pyramidal habit. Its lustrous foliage is very spiny, with 15 to 20 pairs of spines per leaf, and in fall and winter it offers loads of orange-red berries. This hybrid was selected from a cross between ‘Mary Nell’ and ‘Red Delight.’ Liberty has a natural, pyramidal form, handsome enough to be a specimen tree. If Liberty holly had no other characteristics these would be enough to recommend it. But of course, being a holly, in late fall  the branches are smothered in bright scarlet berries that contrast strikingly with the deep green foliage. And, best of all, these berries persist into winter.

Uses

Liberty 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

Liberty stands up well to heat and humidity and heavy sun and does best with a moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. No pruning required however can be clipped for a more formal appearance.
