This new cultivar stands out for its fast growth and striking foliage. In spring, the young reddish-purple leaves appear, which later turn blue-green. In early autumn the leaves turn to aubergine blue, and this will continue until April. Ilex meserveae 'Heckenblau' is a male cultivar and therefore bears flowers but no fruit. It is a good pollinator for the female meservaea cultivars such as 'Blue Angel' and 'Blue Princess'.

Holly grows in full sun, partial shade and shade, but requires a sufficiently moist, humus-rich soil. They do not like lime soil. Very wet soils are not suitable for holly.
Holly is very easy to cut and can be used as a solitary, in groups and as a hedge. Even the Romans already used holly to plant impenetrable hedges.
