    This Japanese Holly is an attractive evergreen shrubbery that is ideal for bed planting. It is deer resistant and drought resistant, 2 important factors here. It comes securely packaged and shipped in a protective box, with a plastic bag around the pot to contain any spillage. It has small fragrant flowers that attract bees, and grows slowly. It can be pruned aggressively to control size. It looks great!

    This Japanese holly “sky pencil” plant arrived in great condition (see picture), and the plant was nicely placed in its container with plenty of soil. Most impressive was the fact it was not a root-bound plant, so you could tell right away that the nursery supplying this plant did a great job in properly growing and packing the plant for transportation (sturdy box and well-marked – see pictures). As you can see from the pictures, the plant was green and healthy with a good root system. I would definitely order plants this way again due to the great condition of this plant. I highly recommend it!

    Thanks for asking - well they appear to be slowly turning brown even though I planted them the moment they arrived and have been watering daily. I think the sun is too hot where I planted them for privacy or I planted too late in the season. Its hot out here in Trabuco Canyon!

    The shrubs arrived in good condition, but were packed on their sides instead of upright, so it was a bit of a mess unboxing them. They were larger than expected and look similar in size to the ones I planted the year prior. I would buy them again.

      Extremely smaller than when buying in person. Box was upside down so all soil was spilled out.
