Aspire Holly is a large evergreen shrub with a pronounced conical shape and dark green foliage.  If pollinated, the inconspicuous female flowers give way to abundant red 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.
