Quercus ilex grows, in time, into a large spreading, evergreen tree with dark, attractively fissured bark and a dense crown of small, leathery leaves - dark green above, downy cream cream below. Given space this is one of the most handsome trees that can be grown in the UK, although better suited to hotter and milder area. It can also be trimmed into topiary or hedging where its drought and salt wind tolerance make the Holm Oak a perfect for shelter screening. It has been grown in the UK since the 16th century.
