This Savannah Holly tree is a hybrid, a cross between Ilex opaca and Ilex cassine, creating one of the best Holly trees for use as a privacy hedge or as a beautiful lawn specimen. If you are homeowner looking for a quick way to block unwanted views, this fast-growing Ilex attenuata is perfect. This cultivar is a landscaping favorite, whether as a small tree or large, upright evergreen shrub. Their glossy, light green leaves stay vibrant all year long, and their show stopping mass of fluorescent red berries stay on from fall through winter, creating the perfect complementary colors for the holiday season. These holly trees tolerate pruning very well, which is ideal for any homeowner that wants to maintain a specific height and structure. We like to use them for lining walkways and driveways, and when planted in mass, they are an effective windbreak!
