Quick Overview:

The Satyr Hill cultivar is one of the top five most popular varieties of female American Holly. Producing large red berries that tend to be well distributed across the tree, the Satyr Hill variety is the modern standard for landscape hollies. Voted the 2003 Holly of the Year by the Holly Society of America, the leaves have a distinctive “tortoise” shape and are typically 3” long and 2” wide. This particular cultivar was found as a volunteer seedling and developed originally at McLean Nurseries in Towson, Maryland.

Description

Easily grown in average, consistently moist, acidic, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Leaves typically yellow in alkaline soils. Tolerates a broad range of soil conditions, but will not tolerate flooding or soils saturated with moisture. Avoid poorly drained soils. Best growth in the wild usually occurs in rich bottomlands and swamp margins. Site in locations protected from cold winter winds. Part afternoon shade is best in hot summer climates. Plant foliage loses density in too much shade. (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
