Ilex meserveae Blue Prince (also known as the Blue Holly) is an evergreen holly shrub. It produces discreet little flowers in spring. The prickly foliage has a permanent blue-green hue and leaves are circa 5 cm in length and have decorative leaf spines. The bark is a contrasting purple brown colour.

Ilex Meserveae Blue Prince has a naturally bushy, spreading, vigorous growth habit. Within 10 years, it will be about 2 metres tall, if not clipped.  Overtime, it will reach a height of about 3 to 4 metres by 2. 5 metres wide. As Ilex Meserveae Blue Prince can be clipped quite tightly so you can keep it to whatever shape is required.

Blue Prince is the male form of Ilex Meserveae, which is a hybrid of Ilex Rugosa (Japanese holly variety) and Ilex Aquifolium (English Holly).  Blue Prince is an excellent pollinator for female forms – such as Ilex meserveae Blue Angel and Ilex meserveae Blue Princess, which are known for producing an abundance of berries. In fact, Blue Prince is an excellent pollinator of female hollies in general so it is always good to add one to the garden to ensure an abundance of showy holly berries in the autumn and winter.
