Ilex aquifolium Alaska is a small, evergreen tree with densely branching, pyramidal crown, smooth, green-brown mature bark, and spiny, dentate, thorny, glossy, dark green leaves. Small, creamy white, 4-petal, female flowers bloom in summer and are followed by attractive, glossy, bright red berries. It is self-pollinating but the berries are more abundant when male Holly is present. Ilex aquifolium Alaska can adapt to various types of soils, even nutrient-poor, but doesn’t like extremely wet soils and grows best in average, moist and well-drained soil. It prefers full sun to partial shade. It is resistant to frost and most hardy variety of the Common Holly. It can withstand wind and maritime conditions, therefore suitable for coastal areas. It is a tough, low maintenance plant. Holly Alaska is a lovely, ornamental tree, perfect for informal, cottage, urban, and coastal gardens. Great for hedges and screens, beds and borders, and for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
