Ilex x 'Dr. Kassab'

Dr. Kassab Holly
As perfect a holly as you can find, this cross between Ilex cornuta and pernyi has gentle small dark blue green foliage, (no where near as prickly as American holly) and a profusion of red fruit . Our specimen, given to us years ago by Holly Man Bill Cannon as a small rooted cutting, is now a beautiful tightly pyramidal specimen 8' tall and 4-5' wide at the base. We have had no problems with winter hardiness in our zone 6A garden. Shipping 8-12" QT. pots.
