Ilex (Holly) Pyramid

A striking holly pyramid which makes an exceptional statement when placed by doors and entrances. 
  • A delightful holly pyramid that will make the perfect centrepiece for your Christmas decoration display as well as a striking garden feature.
  • Blue Maid is a female variety of blue holly, producing masses of tiny, white flowers in spring that are followed by bright red berries in autumn if you have a male holly nearby.
  • Easy to grow and virtually maintenance-free, its leaves are less spiky than other hollies and have a distinct contrast between the light green underside and deep blue-green upper.
  • Grow as a specimen tree in pots and border to add height, or grow a number as an unusual hedge. For extra wow factor, grow in pairs in large pots either side of porches or doorways and gates.
  • Very hardy and tough, Blue Maid will withstand temperatures to -27C and requires almost no maintenance each year apart from an annual trim to keep to shape.

Product Information

A delightful holly pyramid that will make the perfect centrepiece for your Christmas decoration display as well as a striking garden feature for the rest of the year.

Ilex 'Blue Maid' is a female variety of blue holly, producing masses of tiny, white flowers in spring that are followed by bright red berries in autumn if you have a male holly nearby. Its leaves are less spiky than other hollies and have a distinct contrast between the light green underside and deep blue-green upper.

Easy to grow and virtually maintenance-free, they just need a slightly acid, fertile soil and regular watering for the first couple of years to get established.

Because the branches of this holly tend to hold onto their leaves much better than other varieties and grow less vigorously, you get really dense growth which is why they make such amazing topiary specimens.

Grow as a topiary tree in pots and borders to add height, or grow a number as an unusual hedge. For extra wow factor, grow in pairs in large pots either side of porches or doorways and gates - a super Christmas idea!

Very hardy and tough, and with excellent tolerance to British winters, Blue Maid will withstand temperatures to -27C without any damage and requires almost no maintenance each year apart from an annual trim to keep it to shape.

Supplied as a clipped pyramid approx 90cm (3ft) tall including pot.

What Is Supplied

Item 510712 supplied as:

Plant Care Information

Top Tips

Hollies need almost no maintenance if you keep them well-watered for the first couple of years to enable them to establish.

Care Information

  • They are more or less trouble-free, with moderately fast growth.
  • The more light that your holly receives, the more leaves it will produce, so plant it where it will get maximum light.
  • To produce berries, it is worth investing in a separate, Male holly tree.
