Ilex meserve Magical® Amore

Pyramidal shaped, upright, blue holly with super shiny leaves and an abundance of red fruits all winter.

You’re going to love this new holly from our breeder in The Netherlands, Kolster B.V.

Columns of lustrous, evergreen leaves hold showy, red berries from mid-fall to late winter, just in time for holiday decorating. Ideal for screening, this narrow grower is suited for urban settings where larger hollies would be crowded. Plant in groupings to create a hedge, and don’t forget to include a male pollinator, so Ilex Amore is able to produce its showy fruit!

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
