Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Winner of a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit and a fantastic female specimen for year-round interest, Holly 'Argentea Marginata' bears dark green, toothed, evergreen leaves with a striking creamy-white edge. White flowers are borne in late spring followed by an abundance of spherical red berries in winter, which are loved by birds. This handsome standard holly is ideal for containers and borders where the glossy head and long sturdy stem create an architectural focal point in the garden. Supplied as a pot grown standard plant up to 1m (3') tall. Mature height: 150cm (59"). Mature spread: 60cm (24")..

Flowering Months
Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. As plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots. Prune Holly standards to shape while the plants are young. Prune in summer, removing any damaged stems and trimming the head of the standard to a spherical shape. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of border grown plants. Avoid mounding mulch up around the stem as this may cause it to rot.
Caution: Holly berries are harmful if eaten. When growing Holly in patio containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in full sun or semi shade. Alternatively, plant Holly standards directly into borders in any moist, free draining soil.
