This female variety Standard Ilex meserveae, 'Blue Maid' will look fabulous no matter where you choose to put it especially when placed next to a door entrance. It produces abundance of tiny, white flowers in spring that are followed by attractive berries in autumn which is a great contrast against the dark thorny shiny evergreen foliage.
In order to produce fruit Blue Maid needs a male pollinator nearby, preferably from blue holly range such as Blue Prince and Heckenstar.
Grow your Blue Maid Holly in a sunny spot for the densest growth and heaviest berry crops. In the coldest areas plant where it is protected from harsh winter winds. It will grow in all soil types except for the heaviest clays, and it needs well-drained soil. Keep younger plants well-watered, but established trees are tolerant of normal summer dryness. Mulch around the roots to conserve moisture and feed your plant. Grow a male tree nearby for the heaviest berry crops.
