Ilex opaca Maryland Dwarf (@ Mt Cuba)

Ilex opaca 'Maryland Dwarf'

Holly - American

'Maryland Dwarf' American Holly is a very unusual female form of our wonderful native evergreen Holly.  It slowly forms a very wide mound, with dark green minimally spiny leaves and some red fruit production.  American Hollies are amazingly versatile in the North East, thriving from sunny swampy areas to dry shade locations, so 'Maryland Dwarf' can be used in a number of different locations.  It was introduced by in 1942 by E. Dilatush from Bunting Nursery.  Definitely an unusual, groundcover shrub.

PRN Preferred:  Definitely an unusual groundcover shrub which we love because of its diversity.
