Homefire Holly, also known as Ilex x meserveae 'Homefire', is a popular holly cultivar. Here's some information about Homefire Holly:

 Homefire Holly is an evergreen shrub with a compact, rounded growth habit. It typically reaches a height and spread of about 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters). It has glossy, dark green leaves with spiny margins, giving it a classic holly look.

One of the standout features of Homefire Holly is its vibrant red berries. Female plants produce an abundance of bright red berries that persist throughout the winter, providing a beautiful contrast against the dark green foliage. Male plants are needed for pollination to produce berries.

Homefire Holly is a versatile shrub that can be used in various ways. It is commonly used as a foundation planting, in mixed borders, or as a specimen plant. It can also be used as a hedge or screen due to its dense growth habit and spiny foliage, providing privacy and security.
