Ilex aquifolium ‘Bacciflava’
It’s strange that native plants tend to be neglected in gardens, with little written about them. The very least you can say of this holly is that it has unusual yellow berries. The birds seem to prefer the red berries and leave the yellow ones until last. Just make sure this female holly is planted near a male counterpart to ensure fertilisation and a good crop of berries. But berries aside, this is a good garden plant too. Growth is dense and conical and you can even use it as a large hedge. Don’t clip too tightly, otherwise you get hardly any berries. Height Origin Growing conditions part shade. Hardiness RHS H7. Season of interest Autumn.
