Notes for Identification: East palatka holly (ilex x attenuata) east palatka holly makes a durable street tree throughout its range and is quite drought-tolerant once it becomes well-established. Most trees are sheared in the nursery, unfortunately, and this practice is oftenrepeated in the landscape after planting. The naturalshape of the tree is rarely seen but is a graceful pyramid of drooping branches growing from a strong central trunk, laden with bright red berries which remain on the trees until eaten by birds. The crown of east palatka holly grown with one central trunk is narrow, making it well-suited for urban areas having restricted vertical space. Multi-stemmed, topped, and trimmed trees grow a wider crown and are probably not as suited for narrow, limited-space downtown sites as their single-stemmed counterparts. The tree should be grown with a central trunk. Young trees which are topped in the nursery grow several upright, multiple trunks. These eventually droop to the horizontal and then becomemore weeping, creating an unkempt, asymmetrical mess. Training the tree into a single-trunked tree will increase its durability and resistance to storm-damage, although many nurseries offer multi-trunkedspecimens. The tree grows well even in small tree pits carved out of downtown sidewalks. Another hybrid, ‘savannah’, is a fast-growing female plant which also produces abundant red berries. The foliage is light green and variably-spined. Source: ufl pin it
