  • Ilex Blue Prince Trees, commonly known as Holly Trees are a hardy and bushy ornamental tree which produce purplish-green stems with dark, bluish-green foliage alongside white flowers in Spring. Trained into a ‘lollipop’ single stem, these Ilex trees are perfect to sit solitary in small gardens, patios or mixed containers.
  • Supplied in a growing pot, 'Blue Prince' lollipop trees can reach an optimum height and spread of around 300cm, over a 10-20 year period. Be sure to plant in moderately fertile, well-drained sand, clay or chalk soil and position in full sun or partial shade to give it the best opportunity to thrive.
  • Due to the trees hardy and bushy structure, they’re a fairly low maintenance plant to monitor. It’s recommended to prune towards the end of Springtime to encourage fresh, variegated growth for the following season. The tree requires frequent watering until it has been established in its new environment, then just average watering after it's settled in. Be sure not to over-hydrate and make sure the tree doesn't dry out.
  • Holly trees are valued all year round for their stunning display of colours & soft, less dominant prickles. Emerging in Spring with maturing shades of green and white before entering their flourishing season during Summer where these bright colours take over the tree - this gives it a fresh and vibrant look, making them very pleasing on the eye. As the second half of the year hits, the tree will keep its strong green colours, due to being evergreen - which will be accompanied by hints of purple/blue foliage during the Winter season.

The Ilex meserveae 'Blue Prince’ Tree, otherwise known as the Holly Tree, grow prickly green leaves during Spring which flourish throughout the year into a lovely festive bush. Being an evergreen tree, the strong green colours will remain all year round. Perfect to situate in borders, patios, small gardens & mixed containers.

The Holly Tree is a medium growing, elegant tree that is known for its vibrant blue shoots in spring. They appear with a distinct mottled purple and white colouring. As they grow and push their way amongst the deeper green older foliage, a wonderful contrast is created. When the prickles age, they turn to a luscious deep green.
