Dragon Lady Holly is a narrow pyramidal evergreen shrub with glossy spiny dark green leaves.  If pollinated, the inconspicuous female flowers give way to abundant scarlet fruits that can persist well into winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.
