Product Overview

Castle Keep from Proven Winners has glossy, leathery, evergreen foliage that makes a handsome choice for landscaping. This is a smaller-than-average blue holly, growing just 3 ft. tall to 5 ft. W, and with soft-to-the-touch deep green foliage. This is a female variety which will develop bright red berries if male Castle Wall holly is planted nearby. It's best to avoid pruning altogether, as pruning after bloom will remove the potential for fruit to develop. Fortunately, with its dense, rounded habit, little pruning should be required.
  • 3-5 ft. tall and 3-4 ft. wide at maturity
  • Partial to full sun (4+ hours) required
  • Hardy in zones 5-7, be sure to check your USDA zone to ensure success
  • 1 Gal. shrubs are 6-14 in. tall and about 1-year old at shipment, varies by season and plant
  • Shrubs shipped from November through April will arrive dormant; shrubs shipped April through October will arrive green or in bloom

New homeowners and new to gardening/landscaping in general, but we had a lonely blue holly planted in our front bed with no mate. I had no idea if I need male or female at first, so I researched and researched until I came upon the Proven Winners website with more details (no flowers - usually means that's the guy), found its companion, and knowing Home Depot is a licensed partner of theirs, I hoped to find the one I needed here in stock. Ordered this Wednesday night with free shipping option and it arrived Friday afternoon -- impressive! Package was handled with care and the shrub inside was perfectly wrapped with breathable fabric and banded to ensure no damage came to it. I can already spot small flowers. In addition to the care instructions, there's a magazine/booklet inside from Proven Winners. I'm so happy with this purchase. Thank you.
