Mary Nell Holly is a dense pyramidal evergreen shrub with glossy spined dark green leaves.  If pollinated, the clusters of inconspicuous flowers in spring give way to heavy clusters of large red fruits in fall which lasts through winter.  Best planted in full sun and moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.  Drought tolerant once established.
