Quercus ilex, Holm Oak or Evergreen Oak is native to the mediterranean region and has been cultivated in the Uk since the 16th century. With the exception of a few conifers this is probably the most majestic evergreen tree cultivated in the British Isles. Eventually a large tree with attractive corrugated bark, a rounded head and branches, the ends of which are gracefully pendant. The leathery leaves are dark glossy green above and glaborous underneath. They can be entire or toothed and come in a great variety of shapes and sizes depending on the age of the tree and growing conditions. A superb tree that will thrive in any well drained soil and in full sun or partial shade. This tree is particularly adapted to costal conditions and with patience can make a truly splendid hedge as it tolerates shade and clipping. In June the new white, wolly new growth and yellow pendant catkins make this a real sight to behold. There are few plants, large or small that have such a wide varition of size, shape and colour! Can be grown as an estate or garden tree and will happily grow in an eventually large pot. In a pot use a John Innes compost and we recommend you add an 8-9 month controlled release fertiliser annually to ensure sufficent nutrients. This tree is not suitsble for the very coldest parts of the Uk. Eg, the mountains of Scotland.
