The common name for this plant is Castle Keep Blue Holly and the botanical name is Castle Keep™ Ilex x meserveae 'SMNIFA'. The glossy leaves add shiny looking foliage with sunlight. The Castle Keep Blue Holly is evergreen, meaning that the leaves stay on the plant all year round, providing year round color. There are white colored flowers that bloom during spring. The flowers bloom on old wood, which mean the flower buds are grown on branches grown the prior year. During cold winter months, this plant still provides color to the landscape.

In garden containers, use this as a filler. Fillers tend to be rounded or mounded to give the combination a fuller look. Fillers are usually placed in front of, or around, the Thriller. Consider growing these in garden planters or containers for added flexibility on locations limited on space or sunlight. Stays short and perfect as a border plant, which are perfect placed along the edge of a garden bed or path. This plant works great in mass planting or as focal point in your landscaping. The Castle Keep Blue Holly typically grows 3-5 feet tall, and 3-4 feet wide. For best plant health and results, space these plants 3-4 feet apart, center on center. The growth habit is upright. This is a dwarf variety, which grow smaller than smaller than normal for their species. The Castle Keep Blue Holly is winter hardy & summer tolerant in growing zones 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b.
