Sky Pencil
Ordered three 7 gallon pot sized plants, and like other reviewers was disappointed with the size of the shrub in relation to its cost. The plants were three and a half feet tall. Going back through the archive of reviews,I noticed that back in 2020 if you ordered a 7 gallon pot Sky Pencil you would receive a shrub that was a foot taller. As others have suspected, it appears that the grower is sending 5 gallon sized plants in 7 gallon pots.

    Great packaging and value. Just FYI: sky, pencil holly grows on average 6 or 7 inches a year. I’d recommend it.

    Arrived healthy, but was much smaller than a typical 7 gal Sky Pencil. Looked like a 3-5 gal plant in a 7 gal pot. Returned to HD and bought a much larger 7 gal Sky Pencil from an overpriced local nursery for less money than the HD plant.

    All of the pencil holly shrubs died and I spent a lot of money. Undoubtedly, Texas heat is not for every shrub.
