Hollies are shrubs and trees of the genus Ilex. Many of them are highly decorative. Some have leaves with widely-spaced, spine-tipped leaves, while others have simple leaves.

Holly plants are male and female. Only the female has berries, but requires a male as a pollenizer. Also bees are required as wind pollination is negligible.
