just bought a verigated ilex aqufolium with burgundy stems and cream edged leaves not white/silver but the shrub was unnamed. Would anybody have any idea what type it could be ?
I think 'Golden van Tol' has burgundy stems, but it might not be the only one.
My guess would be Handsworth New Silver, but have a look here and see what you think http://www.welsh-holly.co.uk/hollies.htm
It's one of my favourites Looking forward to the picture Verdun.
Thanks for the replies, had a look at the link dove sent and I don't think it's a hands worth new silver as the edge of that leaf is white/silver not cream.
i will check out golden van tol.
i agree handsworth has a white edge but the holly I have does not it has a cream edging.
Or how about Ilex altaclarensis 'Golden King'? I guess the purpleness of the stems may depend on the amount of light they get.
I find that Golden King is much more yellow than the OP's holly.
I still think that his looks like Handsworth Silver and that the creamy colour of the edging will fade to a whiter shade as the leaves age.
