It is a dense, branched shrub, very similar to Ilex aquifolium. The leaves are stiff, leathery, spiky or dentate.
Female ones have numerous red or yellow fruit, remaining on trees until December or longer. The fruits are poisonous.
The soil in a garden cultivation should be fertile, quite humid, not so heavy and acidic. It tolerates shady habitats but blooms lavishly in the sun. It is resistant to frosts and drying winds.
Especially female plants are planted during the winter for decorative appearance in representative places, such as boxes in front of buildings. Male ones are used as hedges or geometrical forms.
