Dwarf Burford Holly
Exceptional Holly in Dwarf Form
Dwarf Burford Holly is a broadleaf evergreen with ornamental features. Lovely as both an accent or low hedge, this vibrant shrub is sure to provide year-round interest in your yard.
Your Dwarf Burford Holly is one of the most popular Holly varieties available. Its emerald-green new growth blends majestically with the darker green of the mature foliage—and stand-out in coloring among other common evergreen shrubs.
Clusters of petite, pristine-white flowers appear in spring to later give way to small berry-like fruit. Its fall fruit adds additional drama to the luster of the foliage. Even without a pollinator you can count on this Holly’s large, scarlet berries brightening your winter landscape…and the birds will adore it as well.
Dwarf Burford Holly will grow 4 to 6 feet in height with an equal spread. It has a compact, mounded habit and is very easy to care for. Unlike many other shrubs, you won’t need a pollenizer in order to enjoy the decorative advantages of the fall/winter fruit, but having one will certainly allow your Holly to bear heavier.
Dwarf Burford Holly also has the advantage of being a bit less prickly than some other Holly choices, Each leaf reaches a graceful point, but not quite as extreme as other varieties, so if you choose to do some pruning, you won’t have to worry about getting scratched up.
There are several Holly varieties to choose from, but Dwarf Burford Holly is certainly one of the finest. Apart from its exceptional, decorative qualities and hardy nature, Burford Holly is small enough to enjoy even if you have limited space.
Use a Burford to fill in an unsightly space in the garden, plant some as a lovely hedge along your home or even place one in a container on your patio. The possibilities are endless with a Dwarf Burford Holly.
