Self fertile (berry producing)
Ilex aquifolium 'J C van Tol' has the most amazing deep green leaves with red berries. They are very hardy holly trees that will cope with the worst winter weather with ease, thriving in a range of conditions from full sun through to full shade. Self fertile Ilex 'J C van Tol' will also produce a mass of bright red berries in winter time. These full standard style holly trees would look fantastic either side of your front door over the festive period and following Christmas will keep their vibrant glossy green leaves all year round. As an added bonus the leaves of this holly are almost spineless so no pricked fingers when keeping them in shape.
These holly trees have been grown as a standard which means that the holly has been allowed to branch forming a lollipop or mop style head. Holly trees are easy to keep to shape with just a couple of trimmings per year (one in late autumn gives fantastic material for making a door wreath or table decorations for Christmas!)
Where more than one tree is ordered we will do our best to match up trees to pair well together. We also provide full care notes with every order. Hollies, like other standards will look great in pots as well as in the ground, we recommend http://www.vasotoscano.com/ for beautiful, frostproof terracotta pots.
