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.

It's Easy to Plant your Red Holly


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your 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 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 Red Holly again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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 all produce berries and do not need mates.

How fast does this plant grow. How long will it take to reach a height of 5-6 ft?
Jeff W on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: We bought these as a Xmas present. Plants are doing well and have put on about 6 inches of growth already. So I guess they'll grow about a foot each year

Will my 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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.
