Blue Princess Holly

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Princess'

Showy, bright red berries on purple stems decorate the dense, blue-green foliage from fall to winter. Pair with a male blue holly pollenizer like Blue Prince for a bountiful berry crop. This makes an excellent hedge plant.

Birds love the winter berries as a food source 

Colors stand out in Winter-time landscape - Fantastic around the winter holiday season
