Chinese Holly (Ilex Cornuta) 25 seeds (#334)

Chinese holly is a large, broadleaf evergreen shrub native to China and Korea. The squarish, dark green, shiny leaves typically bear conspicuous spines at the tips of their five lobes, although some cultivars have fewer or no spines. Female plants have long-lasting large red berries in fall. The flowers appear in early spring and have little ornamental value.
Chinese holly accepts most soils, tolerates drought, and grows well in full sun or light shade. One of the best hollies for warm climates, it can be used as a specimen plant, in hedges, or in mixed borders. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak seeds in hot water for 24 hours.
2. Mix with moist sterile sand or vermiculite (1 part of seeds and 3 parts of vermiculite), put in airtight bag or container and place in a fridge at +2-+4C (36-40F) for 60 days. This process is called cold stratification.
3. Check on them weekly to make sure they are still moist.
4. After stratification sow seeds 6 mm (1/4") deep directly outdoors or individually in pots inside.
The seeds can be planted at any time so you do not have to worry about timing the seed preparation process to plant seeds at a specific time.
Check the seeds often to make sure that they are moist. Seedlings will sprout when they are ready, which can take two to three seasons.
