Genus Description Holly (Ilex) is a genus of over 400 species of evergreen and deciduous trees, shrubs, and climbers from woodland in tropical, subtropical, and temperate regions, grown for their foliage and berries. The leaves may have entire, spine-toothed, spiny, or rarely scalloped margins, and are usually simple and alternate, sometimes in opposite pairs. Flowers, borne from spring to early summer, are produced singly or in clusters or cymes in the leaf axils. They are small, cup­shaped, up to ¾ in across, each with 3-8 petals, usually white or cream, but may be pink, green, or lavender- blue. Male and female flowers are usually borne on separate plants; both sexes are needed to obtain fruits. In temperate climates, hollies bear fruits in autumn. The red or black, occasionally white, orange, or yellow berries are spherical, sometimes ellipsoid, and may cause mild stomach upset if ingested. The vomitoria ‘Nana’ specie (yaupon holly) is an upright, irregularly branched, evergreen shrub or small tree with gray branches, white to gray bark, and narrowly oval to ovate, shallowly toothed, dark green leaves, ½ - 1½ in long, tapering at the bases. Bears abundant, persistent, translucent, scarlet-red fruit, ¼ in across. Useful as a screen or hedge in swampy areas.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow in moist but well- drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil in full sun (which produces the best leaf color in variegated hollies) or in partial shade. Planting or transplanting is best done in early spring. If pruning is needed, remove wayward or crossing shoots to maintain permanent, healthy framework. Prune in late winter or early spring, when dormant; some in late summer or early autumn to prevent bleeding of sap.
Pests and Diseases Young shoots are susceptible to aphids; scale insects and leaf miners may be problems on evergreen species. Sometimes suffer from Phytophthora root rot.
