The Foster Holly typically grows in a pyramidal shape and can reach a height of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) with a spread of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters). It has glossy, dark green leaves with serrated edges, giving it a classic holly look. Female plants produce bright red berries in the winter, which add a festive touch to the landscape.

One of the notable characteristics of the Foster Holly is its adaptability to different soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It also tolerates a range of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. This makes it a versatile choice for various landscaping applications.

The Foster Holly is often used as a specimen tree, in hedges, or as a privacy screen. It is known for its tolerance to urban conditions, including pollution and salt spray, making it suitable for both residential and commercial landscapes.
