Ilex aquifolium Argentea Marginata - Variegated Holly Hedging

Marginata is a large, prickly evergreen shrub or a medium tree that excels when planted as a hedge for security purposes. Variegated Holly has glossy green, spiny, shield-like leaves with distinctive pale yellow to white margins that create a wonderfully vivid foliage display.
As with normal Holly, the females carry bright red berries in late autumn and winter that, although inedible for humans, are both attractive to look at and a vital winter food source for birds and animals.
Variegated Holly is good for hedges up to about 10 metres high.

Variegated Holly hedge plants are only delivered pot-grown, year round.

Choosing a size:
When you are ordering Variegated Holly plants for a hedge, we generally recommend that you use the smaller plants, graded at 40/60cms. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle, and they will establish well in poor conditions.
Use larger plants if you want a taller hedge quickly if you want to clip them as topiary or for instant impact as a specimen shrub.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the pots aren't measured).

Spacing a Variegated Holly hedge: Plant Variegated Holly hedging at 2 plants per metre, 50cms apart.

Young plants are a target for rabbits, and they like to chew straight through the stem, so younger 40/60 and 60/80cms holly plants will need protection with spirals or tree guards for the first couple of years. Bigger sizes have thicker stems and are unlikely to be targeted.

Like Yew, Holly it is on the RHS list of plants that are resistant to honey fungus.

Did You Know?

Since ancient times, the evergreen plants Holly and Ivy have been linked with the spirits of men and women respectively as they struggled to survive the winter. A white holly staff or spear was said to give men endurance and resistance to sickness; it was handy in a fight as well.
The Holly wreaths we decorate doors with at Christmas date back to different Roman and Celtic winter solstice traditions.
