Ilex aquifolium ‘Golden Van Tol’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A particularly good selection that has lush, dark green leaves with irregular cream/golden margins. The leaves themselves are almost thornless. Ilex aquifolium 'Golden van Tol' has small white flowers in summer, followed by clusters of bright-red berries in winter.

The contrast between the coloured leaves and the berries makes this a particularly good choice of holly for a winter garden!

Supplied Size: 3L containers (30 - 40 cm tall)
