Holly ‘Blue Angel' is a classic winter wonder that produces shiny evergreen, blue tinged leaves. Amid the dark foliage, masses of plump red berries are created from December that last through to February, that are great for attracting birds into the garden, especially robins. ‘Blue Angel' can also create excellent indoor displays when using the stems within decorative purposes such as creating the perfect centrepiece during the Christmas season. They will also look particularly dazzling when painted silver or white to add to the festivities. This slow growing shrub reaches a mature height of one metre and will make a wonderful addition to the front of the garden border but can also be grown within containers for smaller gardens. A self-fertile tree, we recommend planting in well-drained soil within sunny spots of the garden, where they will thrive. Supplied with a 35-40cm stem and bushy head (approx. 50cm in total).
