Comments: This is an upright growing shrub that is best adapted for the upper part of the country. English hollies do not grow well in the hot humid South. This cultivar is particularly interesting because of the variegated foliage. Variegated plants usually make a strong presence in a garden and should be selected with special care because of their strong accent.
