Most holly varieties are either male or female (a few are self-fertile) and both kinds need to be grown in the vicinity for the female shrubs to bear berries. 'Pyramidalis' is a female, noted for its fine crops of orange-red berries, and for its shapely conical growth while young later it broadens out a little, but may be kept to shape by trimming. The stems are an attractive fresh shade of yellowish green. Plants make dense attractive shrubs, with purple stems. Like all common holly varieties, it is a robust plant and makes a good specimen shrub. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
