Product Overview

Nellie Stevens Holly (Ilex) is a fast-growing, dense evergreen shrub that can grow up to 3 ft. per year. It has a natural pyramidal shape that requires little maintenance. Bright red berries appear in the fall and persist throughout the winter. Its quick growth rate and dense habit make it perfect for use as a living wall or privacy hedge. Space this holly 7 ft. to 8 ft. apart to create a dense habit that will shield your yard for years to come. You can also use Nellie Stevens as a large accent on the corner of your house or in an area that needs to be filled. As an accent, you can always rely on a tidy shape and a dense habit to build a foundation around your landscape. This holly does well in part sun to part shade. Regularly water in the first year or 2 until your holly establishes.
