Foster Holly is a broadleaf evergreen tree with a dense, upright, pyramidal habit. Glossy, dark olive evergreen leaves (2-3" long). Each leaf has 1-5 well-spaced, tiny, spiny, marginal teeth per side. Small white flowers bloom in late spring. Flowers are followed in fall by an abundant and showy crop of bright red berry-like drupes which persist throughout the winter bringing interest to the landscape. This is a self-pollinating variety, so it doesn't require a second plant nearby to set fruit.
