Product Overview

The Castle Spire Holly is a gorgeous evergreen plant that grows vigorously and produces beautiful red berries, making it a fabulous part of your garden all year, but especially in winter. Since its quite attractive to birds, it is lovely for planting outside a window you're frequently near. Castle Spire is deer, cold, heat, drought and humidity-resistant, making it the ideal low-maintenance year-round beauty. Take cuttings during the holiday season to bring its beauty indoors and add strings of lights for charming holiday decor. Castle Spire Holly grows best in hardiness zones 5-7. The plant can reach a height of 8 ft. to 12 ft., with a narrow spread of 3 ft. to 4 ft. This beautiful holly cultivar is a prolific producer of its signature bright red berries, so get ready for that much-needed splash of color and warmth in those cold and gray winter months.
  • Plant is shipped at a height between 6 and 18 inches. This young plant is low-growing, but quite dense!
  • Beautiful berries and glossy foliage make excellent cuttings for wreaths, centerpieces and other holiday decor
  • Castle spire holly thrives in all soils but especially in very wet soil, as it is native to swampy and boggy areas
  • Holly is a perfect plant for the winter landscape with its evergreen foliage and bright berries that attract birds
  • Castle spire makes a powerful landscape statement when planted as hedges, rows, or corner accents
  • Extremely hardy shrub, castle spire is drought, cold, heat and humidity tolerant

wrong size and scrawny
I just received the replacement plant for the first Castle Spire Holly I ordered because they shipped a quart container instead of a gallon container and now they have done it AGAIN! Scrawny looking and pruned to fit in a small box. My Proven Winners male companion plant (Castle Wall) is far superior and they shipped the gallon size that I ordered. Not happy. Not ordering plants from Home Depot ever again.

Doing well in between our trees in the partial shade - unfortunately the birds ate all the berries! But I would definitely get some more

This plant arrived with very few leave, many of which were speckled black with disease. I will NOT be planting this sickly, scrawny plant in my Very EXPENSIVE and valuable landscape. This company ONLINE ORCHARDS has products completely inferior to Proven Winners. The coordinating pollinator plant I ordered thru Home Depot was sourced thru Proven Winners. It arrived as a lush, healthy, fully green plant of nearly 3 times the height and width of this poor specimen delivered in this order. I went DIRECTLY through Proven Winners and ordered a replacement for this Castle Spire Blue Holly to receive a healthy quality specimen.

I am very pleased with the holly plant. It is a female with berries already on it. I have ordered a male plant so hopefully if I can keep them alive (I live in a warmer zone), they will bear fruit year after year. The plant is beautiful and arrived in excellent shape. I highly recommend this company and the holly plant.
