Dragon Lady (blue) Holly

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Ilex × aquipernyi 'Meschick'                Dragon Lady

Beautiful, dark green-blue foliage. Keeps a dense, upright shape. Low maintenance. The berries & blue-green foliage are exceptionally striking during colder winter months (when most other items are looking a bit bleak)

Birds love the winter berries as a food source 

Will produce berries without a pollinator, however, for maximum berry production - pollinate with a male holly (like the Blue Stallion or Prince)

Columnar Form & Colors stands out in Winter-time landscape - Fantastic around the winter holiday season      

Can be used as a specimen, planted in a hedge, used in mass plantings, or to adorn the sides of an entrance way. Low Maintenance.
