Here's why Nellie Stevens hollies have become so popular:
You’ll appreciate how these holly trees stay deep green all year, unlike other hedge trees that can brown out during either the summer heat or mild droughts.
Plant 5-6 ft. apart for a living wall that gives you complete privacy...no holes, no gaps.
You control how they grow – whether naturally into a dense, pyramidal shape that matures at 15-25 ft., or pruned into a tall box hedge.
They grow as much as 2 to 3 ft. per year without pruning. When they reach the height you want, just clip off the leader. This will slow them down and make them thicken out.
These holly trees make perfect accents at the corners of your home, planting beds, or entryway. The dark green foliage makes a great contrast to surrounding trees and shrubs.
During the winter months, you will enjoy the red berries against the deep green foliage. Clip off some branches to decorate your home for the holidays.
This tree is a bird watchers delight, as its berries attract all kinds of wildlife!
Unlike most holly varieties, these grow tall and stay deep green all year round. Nellie Stevens Holly Trees grow in sun or partial shade.
You will never find a better privacy screen at such a low price. These will sell out shortly, so hurry and place your order today.
