The Blue Maid Holly is a relatively low-maintenance hybrid holly that grows best in moist and well-drained soils. This variety is an evergreen holly that can be grown up to 8 feet tall and is ideal for hedging or creating an outdoor screen. Blue Maid is quite hardy and has snag-free purple-green foliage that looks lovely along walkways or as border plantings. This densely bushy plant has bright red berries and distinctive purple stems, which makes it looks fantastic under snowfall and throughout the remainder of the year. For a sturdy winter-friendly holly, Blue Maid is an excellent choice.
