Holm Oak, Quercus Ilex (Holly Oak)


For evergreen screening or year-round interest in the garden, Quercus ilex is a wonderful choice. The dark-green, glossy foliage is similar to that of a holly tree, hence the common name Holly Oak (or Holm Oak). The spiny, evergreen leaves provide a brilliant plain foil for other plants.

With its evergreen leaves, the holm oak is a bold splash of colour in the winter months attractive bees, butterflies and other insects.

Acorns will develop after pollination by wind.
