A California native evergreen, the Hollyleaf Cherry can be grown as either a large shrub or small tree. The closely set foliage is adapted to long periods of heat and dryness. Spiked leaf margins look similar to those of some forms of holly. White flowers develop in spring and become cherries in late summer to early fall. While the cherries are edible, they are less fleshy than cherries grown for food. Birds feed upon the fruit. The plant needs well-draining soil. Once established, the plant has low water needs. Although the plant is notably slow growing, it provides tremendous value, particularly in drought tolerant, wildlife gardens
