Ilex Meserveae Blue Angel holly makes a stunning topiary plant as indeed do most of the Ilex family of plants. Evergreen and slow-growing with a compact habit, Ilex (hollies) have long been a top choice for use as topiary plants and cloud trees. These Blue Angel hollies in particular have been trimmed into a striking sphere shape.
Ilex x Meserveae is an evergreen hybrid holly from Ilex Aquifolium (our native English Holly) and Ilex Rugosa (a Japanese low-growing holly). The cultivar Blue Angel has prickly leaves in dark green with a blue hue. The female cultivars are known for excellent ability to fruit.
These topiary Ilex x Meserveae Blue Angel holly plants will look good in pots on either side of a doorway or an entrance into your garden or property. They are also a great plant for the garden when planted in a formal setting or used as a (formal) contrast to more informal relaxed planting.
These particular Ilex Meserveae Blue Angel topiary hollies have been field grown and root-balled and are now ready for planting in a pot or to go straight into your garden soil.
Ilex (Hollies) are renowned for making a really tough and hardy topiary plant and will flower and fruit freely in the winter if there is another male nearby.
