Dwarf Chinese Holly is a compact rounded evergreen shrub with spiny rectangular green leaves.  If pollinated, the clusters of inconspicuous flowers in spring give way to abundant to small red fruits in fall which lasts through winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.

Dwarf Chinese Holly

I was so impressed with my first order, pyracantha, that when I needed 8 holly bushes I thought only of Gobuyplants. The order was filled quickly, individually, well secured in boxes. The plants are super healthy and were easily transferred to waiting holes. Superior customer service.
