Elevate your landscape to new heights with the Sky Pencil Holly (Ilex crenata 'Sky Pencil'). This striking and elegant evergreen shrub offers a unique vertical presence that adds a touch of sophistication to any garden or outdoor space.

The Sky Pencil Holly stands tall and slender, reaching an impressive height of 6 to 10 feet with a narrow width of just 2 to 3 feet. Its upright columnar form creates a striking visual effect, resembling a living exclamation point in your landscape design. This distinctive growth habit makes it a perfect choice for narrow spaces, such as entryways, along pathways, or in tight corners, where it serves as a living architectural element.

One of the most remarkable features of the Sky Pencil Holly is its dense, dark green foliage. The small, glossy leaves cover the shrub from top to bottom, providing a lush and evergreen backdrop throughout the year. This creates a sense of privacy and structure while adding an element of natural elegance to your outdoor environment.

At Moon Valley Nurseries, we are committed to delivering top-quality plants, including the Sky Pencil Holly. Our hollies are carefully nurtured and grown to ensure you receive a healthy and vigorous specimen that will thrive in your landscape for years to come.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.
