Ilex Northern Lights

Ilex Northern Lights

A winter hardy, evergreen Holly with striking foliage

Ilex aquifolium Northern Lights is a winter hardy, evergreen holly (height up to 9m/29ft dependent on pruning) with striking variegated, prickly foliage. Its golden yellow, splashed leaves are irregularly margined with a contrasting dark green. Its small white flowers are followed by wonderful bright red berries. Its upright growth habit and dense branches makes it a useful variety for a hedge, in a mixed border or as an impressive single specimen. It should be planted in full sun in a fertile, moist but well drained soil.
