Quercus ilex / Holm Oak-Evergreen Oak-Holly Oak
Quercus ilex is an evergreen tree. It has small leathery green dark green leaves, with a white\cream underside, and black finely cracked bark. Yellow catkins appear in spring. Quercus ilex can be planted in full sun or partial shade, in a sheltered or exposed position. It prefers a moist, well drained soil. Being an oak, this tree can get massive. Annual trimming will keep the tree in shape and under control. If you are near the coast, this is a very good choice. It is able to cope with the salt conditions. It has an eventual height of 12m+ and a width of 8m+.
