Needlepoint Holly is a large evergreen shrub with glossy dark green spineless leaves that end with a slight twist.  If pollinated, the clusters of inconspicuous flowers in spring give way to abundant red fruits in fall which lasts through winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.
