The Robin Holly is a gloriously upright-growing Ilex from the Southern Living Plant Collection. This outstanding tree produces crimson red berries from fall through winter that are iconic of the holiday season. During spring, the Robin produces maroon new growth that eventually changes to a dark emerald green. This Holly’s naturally pyramidal growth habit allows it to be easily trimmed into a compact cone-shaped element in the landscape. The Robin Holly is typically used as a screen, hedge, barrier, or specimen, but also adapts nicely to container plantings. Plant this evergreen in full sun to part shade and fertilize yearly with a slow-release balanced fertilizer in late Spring.
Space Your Robin Holly 6 feet apart for a seamless planting. Alternatively, plant them 12+ feet apart for gaps between plants.
