Holly ‘Fosteri’

Arbor walk #39

A naturally occurring hybrid species of American Holly and Dahoon, it was found growing in the wild in Florida in 1924. This is a broadleaf evergreen tree of small to medium stature that prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil and dislikes extreme hot and cold temperatures. Its small white flowers bloom in late spring and are replaced in the fall by small red berry-like drupes, which stay on the branch for the winter.
