There's so much to love about the Blue Prince and Princess Holly Combo. The ornamental evergreen shrubs have glossy blue-green leaves that provide year-round color—and the white blooms and bright red berries are very ornamental on the Blue Princess plants. You'll want to cut some for Christmas decorations! Birds love to come and feast on the berries. Growing 5-10 ft. tall with a 3-6 ft. spread, holly plants can be grown as foundation plantings or a hedge. For berry production, the female plants require a pollinator, so for the options above, we're including (SKU 80831) one Blue Prince and four Blue Princess plants and (SKU 80832) three Blue Prince and 12 Blue Princess plants. The pollinator plant should be planted within 400 ft. of the female plant. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Zones 5-7
