Product information "Common Holly 'Alaska'"

Hollys are evergreen – which means they provide a good visual protection, even in the winter. The foliage of holly 'Alaska' impresses with its shiny surface and fresh green colour. As befits a common holly, the leaves are covered with spikes. In nature, the plant uses these thorns to prevent animals from eating their leaves.
Bright fruits

The pea-sized, bright red fruits of Ilex 'Alaska' appear already in late summer and stay on the plant for a very long time. They develop from small, white flowers that open starting in May. The bright red colour of the berries makes a nice contrast to the green leaves – which allows holly to be a welcome spot of colour in the greyness of winter and it is also a popular Christmas decoration. The fruits are poisonous to humans, but are eaten by songbirds in late winter.
Uncomplicated for partial shade and shade

Holly 'Alaska' is very tolerant to shade. It thrives in any normal garden soil and makes no special demands. In addition, it is also very tolerant to pruning. It forms shrubs or small trees with mostly egg-shaped crowns and reaches a height of 2 to 6 m.
