Ilex meserveae 'Heckenfee', also known as Blue Holly 'Heckenfee', is a popular cultivar of the Meserve hybrid holly. It is a small, dense, evergreen shrub that is widely cultivated for its attractive blue-green foliage and vibrant red berries. This holly cultivar was first introduced in Germany in the late 1970s, and has since become a popular landscaping plant in Europe and North America. 'Heckenfee' typically grows to about 3-4 feet tall and wide, with a compact, upright habit. Its glossy, spiny, oval-shaped leaves are a deep blue-green color, which provides an excellent backdrop for the bright red berries that appear in fall and persist throughout the winter months. These berries are not only ornamental, but also provide a valuable food source for birds during the colder months. One of the key features of 'Heckenfee' is its hardiness. It is a tough and adaptable plant that can thrive in a wide range of conditions, including full sun to partial shade and a variety of soil types. It is also highly tolerant of heat, drought, and cold, making it an excellent choice for landscapes in many regions.

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).
