Ilex Mr Poppins® Holly

Item #35879


Extremely hardy through cooler temperatures

This Winterberry is a rock-solid performer and is prized for its foliage.

The Mr. for your Mrs., Ilex Mr Poppins® Holly is the ideal pollinator for Berry Poppins®: the two make a lovely pair, both easy to grow and quite compact (3 to 4 feet tall). Working together, this plant helps its female companion crate beautiful berries. For a truly magnificent display, surround this lucky Mr. with up to 10 female Winterberries, and he will happily pollinate them all.

This 2013 introduction is an indispensable asset in the garden, with reliable rock-solid performance in all areas. Mr Poppins® is a wonderful pollinator for female Winterberries. This native selection prefers moist (even damp soil) and full sun to part shade: put it in the right spot and it will flourish with no help whatsoever, though you can always prune it in late winter or early spring if you want to develop a formal shape.

This is an excellent plant for use as a hedge, foundation planting, border presence, or perimeter planting. Unfazed by cold, heat, and most pests, this Ilex will fill your yard with beautiful berries, attracting songbirds for year after year. What a way to bring warmth to a wintry landscape.

Does not produce berries.
