Dragon Lady Holly
Dragon Lady Holly is a pyramidal shaped evergreen holly with an upright growing habit. When fully mature it can reach a height 10 to 15 feet tall and a spread of 6 to 8 feet. The leaves come out as a light green with a slight red tint on the new foliage and then turn a deep dark green color. Dragon Lady Holly is known for its abundant red clusters of bright red berries. They appear in fall and hang on the shrub all winter to add a nice contrast in color. But they will not produce berries if they don’t have a male companion plant. The small white flowers appear in summer but they are so small they are hard to see.
Dragon Lady Holly Landscape Use
In landscapes, Dragon Lady Holly can be used in many ways.
