Nigra Inkberry is a dense upright native evergreen shrub with lightly toothed dark green leaves that grow to the ground.  If pollinated, the inconspicuous female flowers give way to inky-black berries that can persist well into winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.  Nigra is extremely disease and pest resistant.
