Carolina Sentinel Holly is a large evergreen shrub with a narrow and dense conical form and deep, almost blue-green spiny foliage.  If pollinated, the inconspicuous female flowers give way to a heavy crop of red berries 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.  Carolina Sentinel can be trained as a tree and is heat, humidity, and drought tolerant one established.
