      Excellent quality plants!
      When I received my order I was surprised with how great the quality of these plants is! They are super healthy and well shaped. The packaging is absolutely top notch which insured safe travel without broken branches or other damage. The price is very reasonable especially for such good quality plants. We will definitely be buying more in the future!

      Lovely, Lush Plant
      This holly evergreen is so pretty! It's a vibrant green with lush leaves. My plant arrived in perfect condition - happy, healthy, and with moist soil. I had my landscaper install it the next day in front of my house to fill in a bare spot that needed some greenery. The plant requires full sun and it appears to be thriving. I'm watering it every day for the first two weeks, until it takes hold. According to the label, this holly will get quite large. As always, I'm super happy with the plants I order from Home Depot. This is a great shrub and ideal for my "full-sun" climate.

      Healthy and Full
      This Shamrock Inkberry Holly evergreen shrub came in a huge box, so it was very well protected during shipment. The plant is very healthy and arrived in great shape. The shrub is a bit smaller than I had anticipated. My only aggravation is that these plants are shipped when the ground is frozen. We won't be able to plant it for another couple of months, but the plant is healthy so it should do fine until then.

      Healthy Compact Evergreen Shrub
      The 3 GALLON SHAMROCK INKBERRY HOLLY EVERGREEN SHRUB arrived today packaged securely for delivery and is a Healthy Compact Evergreen Shrub. The Home Depot Garden Club tag states to plant this shrub in Full Sun. This plant is hardy to -30F and should maintain a moderately moist soil. This shrub blooms early to late spring, is evergreen and grows 7 - 9 feet tall with spacing 10 - 11 feet apart. This is a nice healthy-looking shrub and I definitely do recommend this plant.

      Very pleased with the size
      The 3 Gal. Shamrock Inkberry Holly Evergreen Shrub came in a tall shipping box and the pot was cling-wrapped to keep its moist soil in. The plant is large at 18 inches and very full and rounded. Nice thick stems, foliage is very dark green. Mature size will be 4 x 4 which is great for me to put beside the driveway with no future problems. I am very satisficed with this shrub. 5 STARS

      Heathy Shrub
      I ordered this shrub on-line; if arrived in a few days in perfect condition. If I'm ever in the need to order another one of these shrubs on-line I wouldn't hesitate to do so. This shrub was shipped directly from the nursery to our home, which is located in a climate area similar to ours, so it should be well acclimated. It was well packaged & had a plastic wrap cover over the pot to reduce evaporation. It appears to be perfectly healthy & ready to be put in the ground. However, the ground is still a little frozen. I plan on keeping it in our garage for the next couple of weeks. It will get plenty of light & won't freeze.

      Always wanted a Holly bush
      Excited to add a few Holly bushes to our landscaping. The Shamrock Inkberry Holly is promoted as a dwarf Holly bush, but this version shows a growth height of 7 - 9 feet on the tag, which I wouldn't consider a dwarf Holly bush. Like other Holly bushes, the Shamrock Inkberry is either male or female. The female plant will require a male plant to produce the black berries that are displayed throughout the Winter months. The Inkberry Holly is cold tolerant down to -30℉, making it a good option for Zone 4 and above. It's also advertised as deer resistant, although I've seen the deer around here eat just about anything near the end of Winter.
