Foster's No. 2 HollyIlex x attenuata 'Fosteri'
Despite its strong ties to the holiday season, holly makes a great year-round landscape addition. Glossy dark green leaves persist through the seasons. Small white flowers arrive in the spring. And deep red berries winter gardens. A dense, compact, upright growth and neat habit makes Foster's No. 2 holly ideal for use as a tightly clipped screen or hedge or as a specimen, foundation or container planting.
This holly is a female cultivar, but there’s no need to plant a male specimen to ensure berry production. It is parthenocarpic, meaning it can produce fruit without pollination.
