Holly 'Red Beauty' - 3 Gal.


Ilex x rutzan 'Red Beauty'

The search for a better upright Holly never seems to end but it could with the advent of 'Red Beauty'. This outstanding selection combines the deep green foliage and large berries of Ilex opaca and compresses it into a dense, smaller pyramidal form that is perfect for the home landscape. Its dense form is accomplished without pruning and its berry set is immense needing only a strategically placed Ilex 'Blue Prince' to ensure outstanding fruit set. 'Red Beauty' is a true departure from the norm in hollies and one that deserves a prominent landscape spot either as a specimen or grouped to form hedge that will look formal with very little work. Plant 'Red Beauty' in full sun for best results.
