Ilex x ‘Emily Bruner’

Rooted cuttings are 4-8″ in height. First introduced by Don Shadow of Shadow Nursery, the Emily Bruner holly is a true hybrid. The result of cross pollination between Ilex cornuta ‘Burfodii’ and Ilex latifolia in the field, the Emily Bruner holly has quickly become one of the most popular holly cultivars in Tennessee landscapes. With a slow to moderate growth rate, the Emily Bruner holly grows 20 to 30 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide with a pyramidal shape. Best for USDA Hardiness Zones 7 through 9, the evergreen holly thrives in full sun and is tolerant of most soils. The Emily Bruner is a female holly and requires the presence of a male pollinator for berry production. In addition to its tight clusters of berries, the Emily Bruner holly excels as a living fence and dense screen. Leaves are typically 3 to 5 inches in length with 10 to 15 spines on each side.
