The Oakland Holly, Ilex Magland, is newer to the scene but just as exciting! It has dense foliage that has a pyramidal growing habit making it perfect for use as a screen or hedge. It is easy to grow and extremely adaptable. You get beautiful green leaves all year, and in the winter, it's full of red berries.
The foliage is dense and glossy deep green. It has an appearance similar to an oak leaf. In the winter it develops red berries without a male pollinizer and looks stunning. It is pest, disease, and deer resistant. The Oakland Holly can reach a height of between twelve and twenty feet. Its spread can be anywhere from eight to fifteen. This Holly can be used for screening purposes, as a hedge, or as a border plant. It can be planted alone as a focal point and will still develop loads of berries!
