The Broad-Leaved Silver Holly tree (Ilex aquifolium 'Argenta Marginata') carries masses of bright red berries in autumn to winter but it is its leaves that are a lustrous, spiny, silver-margined, dark green leaves colour that distinguishes this tree, these leaves being a purplish-pink colour when young. It is fairly pyramidal in form. This excellent, silver-margined holly makes a splendid, evergreen ornamental tree for a sunny, medium-sized garden. A good self-fertile fruiting female form making a splendid specimen tree, hedge or topiary.
It is well-suited to urban or coastal sites as it copes well with pollution and salt-laden air.
This tree is supplied at a height of 1.0 metres and in a 7 litre container for year round planting.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
