‘Jersey Knight’ is a dense, upright American holly cultivar that typically grows to 7-8’ tall and spreads to 3-4’ wide over the first 10 years, but over time may eventually grow to 20-30' tall. Greenish-white flowers appear in May and are generally inconspicuous. Spiny-toothed, elliptical, glossy, dark green leaves (2-4” long) are evergreen. As a male cultivar, 'Jersey Knight' will not produce fruit. Species plants are native to the eastern and southeastern U. S. including Missouri. Opaca means opaque or dull, in reference to the non-lustrous leaf surfaces of species plants (many of the cultivars, including this one, have more lustrous foliage). Zones 5 to 9.
