Description: The original plant of this clone was found by Lud Hoffman in Bloomfield, Connecticut over forty years ago. This plant is now approximately 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide, and in the fall of the year it is covered with an extremely heavy berry set of extra large berries. This is a gorgeous plant, and it will knock your eye out on a cold December day.
Ilex verticillata in nature is found primarily in wet swampy areas or around the edge of bogs; therefore, it has great value for planting in wet sites. However, it also can tolerate quite dry conditions and sometimes produces its heaviest berry sets there.
