Dragon Lady holly is a relatively low-maintenance, hybrid holly that grows best in moist but well-draining soils. Ilex x meserveae 'Dragon Lady' has a tall, columnar habit and glossy dark green foliage. It has long been a popular hedging plant for privacy screens and borders. Dragon Lady's curved leaf has distinctive spines and it produces bright red winter berries. These fruits mature in the fall and remain attractive well into the winter, when they are generally eaten by seasonal birds. Ilex Dragon Lady’s best fruiting occurs in full sun, but it certainly appreciates some dappled afternoon shade in hotter climates. The foliage generally opens up as the amount of shade increases.

Dragon Lady holly (Ilex aquipernyi 'Dragon Lady') hedges two years after planting.
