what size planter

Asked by: hdlady
This plant will perform well in a planting that is 3 gallons or larger. You will want to up size the container every 2 years or so to make your your plant does not get choked and root bound.

Customer Reviews

2.5 Qt. Compacta Japanese Holly is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from HD Garden Hollies Died of Disease Builder used these as foundation plantings, I requested more in another area and they got them from HD. After five months the HD plants lost leaves, stems showed black streaks and the plants died. Others from local nursery are fine! Looking at a sample, local extension said this was black root rot, a common Holly disease. Tests by NC state and others show that without proper care and treatment in early growth, this disease can infect nursery stock from unknown growers.. Personally, I will no longer use "unbranded" plants like these from Home Depot. It's just not worth the effort to dig the plants up, now the soil is contaminated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The beautiful Holly. I bought 2 of these plants for Christmas 2014 from the local Home Depot, and planted them on both sides of my garage after the holidays. They look pretty, and healthy. I hope they will be there for many years to come.
