Good question. I received two that said 'Blue Holly' and one that just said 'Holly' on the label. Also, the dimensions of the plant shown on the label, don't match as advertised. So I really don't know what to expect. Even the botanical name does not match. I just went ahead and planted mine and will see what happens, luckily I only ordered three plants. There are many 'Varieties' of the Nellie Steven's Holly and I didn't know that until after ordering.

can it grow in partial shade

I researched the age of a 7 gallon holly, and it was indicated 3-5 years old. My plants arrived 3-31/2 feet tall not including root ball.

How tall is the plant, not counting the container?

It varies a little, and you might have to prune away broken limbs. Plan on three to four feet.

Quality of the Nellie R. Stevens Holly Shrub was excellent, with healthy new growth. Packaging was exceptional with no visable damage to the shrubs. Delivery was timely and professionally done. However, one of the shrubs was noticeably smaller/shorter the the rest. Shrubs were quickly planted and are thriving.

Shrubs were packed very well and shipped via UPS without issue. Plants arrived healthy; however, shrubs weren't dense and the sizing was inconsistent and shorter than indicated online. For the price, I could have gotten taller, fuller shrubs at a local nursery. Since planting there has been a flush of new growth, a very good sign.

Absolutely beautiful!
I ordered the 7 gallon size and it is absolutely beautiful! Perfect shape and almost 4 ft tall. Shiny green leaves and loaded with berries. Never ordered trees online before but I’m just thrilled with this holly. Highly recommend.

It was a little smaller than I expected when it arrived. But it appeared to have been trimmed probably for shipping and it was also early spring so made sense no new growth after trimming was present. Now it has already grown a few inches in a few months, which surprises me because it should still be getting acclimated to the new soil. It's extremely healthy and definitely appears will thrive where I located it. Would definitely come back for more here!

the 5 nellie stevens plants arrived well packaged in healthy condition. 36" - 39" high and 21"-24" wide. Planted in a trench with mixture of cow manure, compost and new soil topped with pine bark mulch 5' apart in partial shade on 4/20/2021. Today on 6/10/2021 they have grown 3 "- 6" taller and 10"- 12" wider in beautiful condition !! Love watching my Nellies grow

Like other reviewers, I was hesitant about ordering $1000 worth of these shrubs for mail delivery, but we were very pleased with the trees and can highly recommend ordering your shrubs this way. We ordered 9 shrubs, so having them shipped directly to our house was so much easier than trying to fit 9 4- ft shrubs into multiple cars. We've had the shrubs over a month now, and so far, so good!
