The Nellie R. Stevens Holly is one of the fastest growing, most disease resistant hollies ever bred. These evergreens stay deep green all year, unlike other hedge trees that can brown out during either the summer heat or mild droughts. Shape: Pyramid-shaped evergreen or privacy screen Pruning: Let them grow naturally into a dense, pyramidal shape. Plant 5-6 ft. apart for a fast, living wall that will give you complete privacy... no holes... no gaps. They grow up to 3 feet per year unpruned. When they reach the height you want, just clip off the leader. This will slow them down and make them thicken. You can also use hollies to accent the corners of your home, a birm, flower garden or entryway. The dark green foliage makes a great contrast to surrounding trees and shrubs. Flowers or Fruit: During the winter months you will enjoy the red berries against the deep green foliage. Watch as these berries attract all types of birds! They withstand poor soil, drought and neglect. Exposure: Nellie Stevens Hollies grow in sun or partial shade Moisture: They like well drained soil Maturity: Height 15-25 ft., or prune them into a tall box hedge Spread: 10 feet Usage This fast growing plant makes attractive hedges and screens in just a matter of a few years. HARDINESS: Zones 6 - 9.
