English Holly (Ilex Aquifolium)

About English Holly

English Holly is an evergreen tree/shrub that can grow 7-10 m (23-32ft) tall. With reddish orange berries, that are poisonous to humans, it forms dense thickets that dominate and suppress germination of native trees and shrubs. The leaves are glossy, dark green and wavy, and usually have sharp, stout spines along the edges. The flowers are small, whitish and sweetly scented. The seed (in berries) are spread by birds and the plant can also spread vegetatively.
