The Foster's No. 2 Holly grows in zones 6-9.
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.

  • Features glossy, dark green leaves and deep red berries
  • Displays white spring flowers
