Emily Bruner Holly is a large dense evergreen shrub with a broad pyramidal habit and spiny deep green leaves.  The clusters of inconspicuous flowers in spring need a male pollinator to give way to the heavy clusters of large bright red fruits in fall that lasts through winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Emily Bruner requires more nitrogen than other hollies to maintain its deep green foliage.
