Burford hollies look distinguished, with their glossy leaves and dense, handsome habit of growth. They are usually planted in a grouping as a hedge or border and sheared evenly; used this way, they are hard to improve on. Burford hollies are mostly seen at 8-12', but over time may reach a height of 20' or more. Lower branches may be removed on large specimens to achieve a tree form. Leaves have a sharp point at the tip, and some leaves develop two spines on the side. Burfords berry freely and without pollination, and the fruit lasts for months, providing a food source for birds into late spring. (Birds seem to prefer other types of holly berry to Burford berries, but will eat these when others are not available.) Dwarf Burford hollies (I. cornuta burfordii 'nana') do not berry as heavily but have other qualities of the full sized Burfords, and may be used where a shorter shrub (5-8') is preferred.
Culture A very adaptable shrub. Prefers slightly acid, rich, well drained soil but tolerates a wide pH range and many soil types. Resistant to drought and heat, and tolerates wet soil as well. Light Sun to partial shade. Moisture Moist to dry. Hardiness USDA zones 8-9. Propagation Propagate from cuttings; rooting hormone helps.
