ℹ A beautiful member of the wildly popular Blue Holly series!!! Every Princess needs her Prince, especially if you are a holly bush which needs a male pollinator to produce berries! Rather than having to buy two plants, we have combined the Prince and Princess together in one pot, to grow as a single bush, so that you can have beautiful red berries for the festive season, without the need to grow two plants. Not only that, but these hollies are much more winter hardy than common holly, so they will grow in colder areas, throughout zone 4. Now almost everyone in the country can enjoy this stunning plant and harvest their own festive holly branches, laden with berries, even from the smallest garden. With striking glossy, dark blue-green toothed foliage that maintains its vibrant color throughout the winter, this plant will add a welcome splash of color against drab browns and grays in the cool season. The eye catching and attractive purple stems and glossy blue-green leaves even stand out in the landscape during the growing season from the usual summer greens. Plant as a spectacular specimen plant or use as a highly ornamental evergreen border/hedge. Bring cuttings inside as winter decorations. A gathered "bough" looks wonderful hung over doorways or include the cuttings in your outdoor containers.
