Ilex opaca 'Satyr Hill'

SATYR HILL

AMERICAN HOLLY

"An evergreen tree which showcases its glossy, dark-green leaves year round. Known for its vibrant red berries that adorn its branches during the fall and winter."

IN OUR GARDEN

Currently, we have four American hollies in our park. They'll start blooming and showing off their flowers in late spring, and begin fruiting in early autumn.

HOW TO GROW

SOIL CONDITIONS

The Satyr Hill American Holly thrives when cultivated in sandy loam soil, necessitating effective drainage and a generous supply of organic nutrients. It flourishes within a favored pH range that generally leans slightly towards acidic to neutral, typically falling between 5.5 and 7.0, to ensure its optimal growth.

SUN EXPOSURE

The Satyr Hill American Holly flourishes in settings ranging from partial shade to dappled sunlight. While it does have the capacity to withstand full sun exposure, it's important to recognize that, particularly in hotter climates, offering shade during the peak intensity of the sun is recommended to prevent the possibility of heat-related stress.
