Ilex aquifolium "Heat tolerant"
A number of years ago, we received cuttings from an unknown Ilex in a friend's garden. This plant tolerates our hot, humid summers quite well and is beautifully variegated to boot! Creamy white, irregular margins appear on the dark green, shiny, stiff-pointed leaves. These have become rather leggy in pots, but we believe they'll fill out nicely once established in the garden. [Zones 6-8?]
