Miss Helen American Holly is a dense slow-growing native with a conical habit and spiny olive-green foliage.  A female holly that, if pollinated, will produce heavy clusters of 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.
