Snow Flash Berried

The variegated wide-leaf holly, Ilex latifolia ‘Snow Flash’ is loaded with berries and looking quite spectacular in the garden this month. We’ve shared cuttings with several nursery folks, so hopefully, this will be making its way into the market. The plant was originally brought to the US from Japan by plantsman Barry Yinger. Our specimen below is now 18 years old. Hardiness is Zone 6a-9b.

  1. How tall and wide will this get/growth rate? I assume the variegation stunts it’s growth a bit? Hard to find any information on this specific cultivar. Saw this in person in the garden and loved it.
