Alaska Holly Hedging

Alaska Green Holly, Ilex aquifolium Alaska, is a guaranteed female clone of the native green holly. It also grows into a medium sized tree as well as making a first class evergreen hedge plant or topiary specimen. Alaska is the hardiest of the hollies and will grow on just about any soil, both chalky and acidic. Hollies grow well in quite deep shade, near the sea, and in areas of atmospheric pollution. A holly hedge is one of the best windbreaks there is and Alaska holly brings the added benefit of guaranteed red berried in the winter. All mature hollies are drought resistant.
Holly is good for taller hedges: most ilex varieties reach 10 metres if allowed to grow freely.
You can also buy Variegated Silver Holly and Ripley's Gold Holly. View our selection of holly hedging plants or see our full range of hedging.

Alaska Holly plants are only delivered pot-grown, year round. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots and pot aren't measured).

Spacing a Holly hedge:

Plant Holly hedging at 2-3 plants per metre, 33-40cms apart.

General description of Holly plants:

Holly bushes have spiny, glossy green leaves which are very effective at reducing wind speed. Holly leaves are responsive to their environment; the high up leaves on a tall tree are safe from being eaten and lose their spines. Female plants have bright red berries from late autumn to early winter.Holly wood is strong and flexible, able resist the stresses of snow piling up on its branches and strong, wintry winds without breaking. Holly is on the RHS list of plants that resist honey fungus well.
