Gold Coast English Holly Growing and Maintenance Tips

Ilex grow best in a slightly acidic, slightly moist, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. To shape the plant, pruning should be done in late fall to prevent winter dieback. One, male, ilex plant will effectively pollinate up to six, female plants.
