Nellie Stevens Holly
Ilex x 'Nellie R. Stevens'
- Considered by many to be one of the most attractive hollies
- Very low-maintenance plant
- Ideal for use as a solid privacy hedge, security barrier or windbreak
Nellie Stevens Holly is a favorite in our area, made popular because this beautiful Holly is an ideal choice for hedges and privacy screens! A hybrid between English Holly and Chinese Holly, Ilex x 'Nellie R. Stevens,' is a fast-growing evergreen shrub with dense dark green foliage and a pyramidal growth habit that gives it a place in the tree category. Of course, you get the lovely foliage all year long with the bonus of tiny white flowers in the spring and beautiful ruby red berries in the winter. We like to use them along property lines or as separators within a yard. Plant them several feet apart to make a solid natural living wall to block unwanted views and to keep nosy neighbors at bay! If you want to create a private backyard or front yard for solitude, you cannot go wrong with this Nellie Stevens Holly!
Nellie Stevens Holly trees are very low-maintenance plants. In fact, they thrive on neglect, so just let them grow and do what they do best – providing beauty, privacy and adding year-round interest to any size landscape! These hollies thrive in a spot with partial to full sun exposure and benefit from fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Once established, they will require little to moderate water.
