A beautiful deciduous holly that produces dangling satiny red fruits, small (1/4 inch) white/green flowers with 5 ribbon-like petals in May are mostly inconspicuous amongst the expanding leaves, smooth green spineless leaves with red/purple pedicels have bronzed edges in early spring and turn yellow in fall, mottled gray bark with warty lenticels, fruits are winter wildlife food, host plant for the Columbia Silkmoth, Hyalophora Columbia, uncommon shrub of wet areas. Our plants are grown from seed and are therefore 'unsexed' - they are too young to flower yet so we don't know which ones are male or female, both male and female plants must be present to produce fruit.
Native Range: NL across s QC & ON, south though NJ, MD, WV to IL & MN. Rare in MD, IN, & IL
