Carissa Holly

Carissa Holly (Ilex cornuta 'Carissa') is a compact, evergreen shrub that is prized for its dense, glossy foliage and attractive red berries. It is a slow-growing cultivar of Chinese Holly (Ilex cornuta), reaching a mature height of 3-4 feet and a spread of 4-5 feet.

Carissa Holly has small, oval leaves with a single spine at the tip. The leaves are dark green in color and remain evergreen throughout the year. In the spring, the shrub produces small, white flowers that are not particularly showy. However, the flowers are followed by an abundance of bright red berries that ripen in the fall and winter.

Carissa Holly is a versatile shrub that can be used in a variety of landscaping applications. It is a popular choice for hedges, borders, and foundation plantings. The shrub can also be used as a specimen plant or in container gardens.

Carissa Holly is a low-maintenance shrub that is relatively easy to care for. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. The shrub is drought-tolerant once established, but it will benefit from regular watering during hot, dry weather. Carissa Holly can be pruned to maintain its shape and size.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
