HOLLY CHINA BOY

Description

CHINA BOY is a dense, upright evergreen holly which matures over many years to 7-10' tall by 5-8' wide. Often seen growing much shorter however.  Has extremely glossy medium green foliage - very classic, traditional holly look to it. This cultivar has shown itself to be quite tolerant of both extreme cold, as well as heat. Has been known to withstand temps as low as -20 F.  Prefers full sun, will accept some shade as well. China Boy takes very well to pruning / trimming, so it can be maintained at virtually any shape or size to fit a wide variety of uses. As the name would indicate, China Boy is a male holly, and is the primary pollinator for China Girl Holly.
A planting needs at least one CHINA BOY within 400' as a pollinator for up to 9-10 CHINA GIRL plants.
