Prunus ilicifolia

20-30' tall / 20' wide


Hollyleaf Cherry is a large, multi-trunked, evergreen shrub that is easy to grow, in well draining soils, in both high and low water conditions. Slow to moderate growth rate.

In the garden, Hollyleaf Cherry can be used as a privacy screen, slope stabilizer or foundational evergreen backdrop. If shaped and consistently pruned, Hollyleaf Cherry can be used as a specimen, small tree, but does have fruit droppings. Can be grown in narrow spaces.
