A natural hybrid of the Dahoon and American types of holly, the Eagleston Holly is fast becoming a favorite in landscapes throughout Houston. These types of holly trees are also known by the botanical name, Ilex x atteneuata ‘Eagleston,’ and we like to use them as an attractive privacy hedge that requires little maintenance! They are small trees with a pyramidal growth habit, and the shiny medium-green leaves provide the ideal seasonal backdrop for the clusters of bright red berries that hold on throughout fall and winter!
Eagleston Holly like partial sun to full sun exposures and they grow at a slow to moderate pace. Buy as big as you can for an instant natural privacy screen or a stunning ornamental tree that is ready to add plenty of curb appeal! Once established, they have little to moderate water requirements and their roots are rarely invasive so that they are also ideal near pathways or anywhere in your landscape! Thanks to their slower growth rate, they require minimal upkeep and can be easily shaped to the desired form!
