'Satyr Hill' American Holly

The 'Satyr Hill' American Holly is one of the top five most popular varieties of female American Holly. Producing large red berries that tend to be well distributed across the tree and are best by late October, the Satyr Hill variety can reach heights of 30 feet. Leaves are usually described as "tortoise-shaped" and are typically 3 inches long and 2 inches wide. This particular cultivar was found as a volunteer seedling and developed originally at McLean Nurseries in Towson, Maryland by Stewart McLean. Registered by the Holly Society in 1970, the cultivar was named for the road on which the nursery is located. 'Satyr Hill' is a vigorous grower with a compact, upright habit.
