Product Description

Quercus ilex, commonly known as the Holm Oak or Holly Oak, stands as a symbol of timeless elegance in the botanical world. This evergreen oak species graces landscapes across the Mediterranean region and beyond, contributing to the iconic scenery of olive groves and rolling hills.

The Holm Oak is recognized for its impressive, broad-leaved canopy of glossy, dark green foliage. Its leaves are holly-like in appearance, featuring spiny margins that add texture to the overall aesthetic. This evergreen nature ensures that the tree maintains its verdant charm throughout the year, making it a valuable addition to both natural and cultivated landscapes.

As the Holm Oak matures, it develops a majestic, rounded crown, providing ample shade beneath its branches. Inconspicuous flowers give way to acorns, which are a valuable food source for wildlife, including birds and small mammals.

Adaptable to a variety of soils and climates, Quercus ilex thrives in well-drained soils and exhibits a remarkable tolerance to drought once established. This resilience, coupled with its classic beauty, makes it a favored choice for parks, gardens, and avenues.

Beyond its ornamental value, the Holm Oak has cultural significance, often featured in art and literature throughout Mediterranean history. Its enduring presence and adaptability make Quercus ilex a symbol of strength, longevity, and natural beauty in landscapes across the regions it graces.
