Description:

Hollies are evergreen shrubs with usually thorny leaves, they thrive well in any soil except extremities but dislike drought and heat. 'Bacciflava' variety has yellow fruits. Varieties usually don't come true from seed but we have propagated this variety from seed as an experiment and although there is no guarantee that the seedlings will have yellow berries, they are worth a try. Either way, these seedlings will grow well and form a nice evergreen shrub.
