A native of Turkey, this is a rare, large, evergreen shrub with quite narrow, short stalked, polished dark green leaves and striking red berries in autumn.

Ilex colchica will become a lovely specimen holly but does tend to be fairly slow growing and so is not normally a plant for instant gratification.
