A Thick Ornamental Tree Foundation Hedge or Privacy Fence with a Festive Flair

This is a versatile Holly that grows large naturally and takes well to pruning.

As a seasonal bonus you also get bright red berries to cheer up your winter and put you in a holiday mood.

Deep, green leaves offer sharp contrast to the multitudes of bright red berries, making them pop with wonderfully noticeable color.

Easy to grow and shade tolerant, this large, rounded shrub plays a role in every season, including spring. That's when birds will drop in to your garden to feast on the juicy berries. And the Red Holly holds up well indoors too.

Place cuttings in decorative bowls or vases throughout your home and you'll be amazed at how long they last. Red Holly adapts to clay and sandy soils and is a trouble-free plant.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Robin™ Red Holly



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Robin™ Red Holly.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Robin™ Red Holly gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Robin™ Red Holly again after the transplant is complete.

Why did you choose this?
Fast-Growing-Trees.com Store
I picked this and all of the others because I am doing a memorial garden in honor of my son who passed away 3 years ago . He is a Cincinnati Reds fan and I am having my garden filled with the brightest whites and brilliant reds I could find. All of the plants I have bought from here have been strong, healthy and brilliant vibrant whites and reds! I have been so pleased with their performance ! This is definitely worth the money . It is not the same as you can buy at any hardware store.

Do I need to get male and female Red Holly plants in order to have berries?
agarlisi on Jun 19, 2014
Best Answer: No. Our Hollies are self fertile and transgender. They're both male and female so they all produce berries and do not need mates.

can you root a holly branch from a holy tree?
catwoman on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, use a rooting powder. Plant the cutting in a good quality potting soil in pots and keep the soil moist. The 1st year it is best to control the growing conditions such as a greenhouse, sunny window or grow light.. I also cut a stem about 4 inches long and strip all of the leaves off except 4 -8 and break the waxy/ shiny stem. Scraping the stem using a fingernail the dip the stem in water then into the rooting powder. Use a pencil or index finger to make a hole in the potting soil. Place the cutting gently into the soil trying not to knock the rooting powder off. Then gently press the soil so that the cutting is held firmly in place. Water, watch and wait for new growth.

is this deer resistant?
Teresa W on May 24, 2015
Best Answer: I planted my hollies 2 years ago in an area were deer had been spending nights in the winter. So far the deer have not been drawn to them and they are flourishing. Under harsh conditions deer will eat anything, but, so far, they have preferred my other plantings.

How often should we water the Red Hollies (& Nellie Stevens Hollies) after initially planting/watering? They are in Zone 6 (CT) in well-draining, leafy/loamy soil on a slope at edge of woods with ~5 hrs of midday sun.
Donna G on Jul 4, 2015
Best Answer: Water new trees twice a week for the first two months. After two months, water once a week up until six months. At that time, the tree will be well-established and will only need extra water if it is very windy and sunny during the winter.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
