Ilex x meserveae 'Blue Angel' is a dense, upright, evergreen holly.
It features small, dark blue-green spiny leaves, dark purple stems, and white flowers in spring.
These are followed by bright red berries in autumn, if planted near a male variety.
It is slow-growing, eventually reaching a height of 3m-4m.
The species Ilex x meserveae is hybrid of two holly species, Ilex acquifolium and Ilex rugosa. Most forms of this species, including 'Blue Angel', have a characteristic blue sheen to their dark green leaves.
