Different Kinds of Hollies

Nellie Stevens Holly:

A mix between a Chinese and English holly, this medium tree is one of our most popular privacy hedges. Admired for its glossy green foliage year round, and the radiant red berries that grow in the fall, if you’re looking for a privacy screen with a classic look this is your go to.

 

American Holly:

This holly can adapt to almost any kind of soil and remains fully branched to the ground as it matures. Similar to our best seller, the Nellie Stevens Holly, this is evergreen tree is commonly used for privacy and grows berries during the winter. The only difference between these two popular hollies is that the American holly doesn’t grow as fast as the Nellie Stevens annually.

 

Oak Leaf Holly:

The Oak Leaf Holly has no competition when it comes to tolerance. Unlike many in its family, this tree is the hardiest and toughest. Commonly used as an ornamental, this tree will put on a show year round. With its large red berries against its polished dark green leaves during the fall then to the hues of maroon to emerald green in the Spring, this tree is a show stopper for sure.

 

Winter Red Winterberry:

Hollies usually thrive best in warmer temperatures, like the south, but when it comes to the Winter Red Winterberry these assumptions are no longer valid. Hardy down to -30 degrees, this tree is perfect for Growing Zones 3 through 9! This female deciduous tree will surely give you all of the beauty that other hollies give before losing its leaves during the winter.

 

Apollo Winterberry:

This Male Winterberry pollinates with the Winter Red Winterberry. This tree thrives in the cold and heat, and can pollinate up to 6 Winter Red Winterberries by itself! Though Apollo does not produce berries, this tree still grows creamy white flowers during the late spring.

 

Sky Pencil Holly:

This maintenance free tree gives you a sleek modern look without the work. The Sky Pencil Holly can be used as an ornamental or can accent your home in rows for a narrow hedge. The choice is up to you! Forget about pruning and let the Sky Pencil do its thing. It will not disappoint.

 

Soft Touch Holly:

These adorable shrubs are different from most in its family. Instead of the red berries that most hollies produce, the soft touch holly will grow black berries during the late fall or early winter. Maturing to a height of 2 to 3 feet tall, this tree is perfect if you love the gleaming green leaves of hollies but you do not want the height that comes with it.

 

Robin Red Holly:

Unlike other hollies, this tree can grow well indoors and thrives wonderfully in shade too. Clusters of red berries will last until winter, making it the perfect ornamental for Christmas every year. This maintenance free shrub grows large naturally and adapts to sandy and clay soils.

 

Best Time to Plant a Holly Tree

Anytime is the best time to plant a tree as long as the ground isn’t frozen. However, the best time to plant your tree is when your holly has enough time to get those roots established before it is exposed to high heat. Therefore, for the best results plant your tree in cooler seasons like the fall or spring.

Planting Holly Trees:
When planting your Holly tree, it is important that you pick a spot that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight per day and has well-drained soil. This is vital because if your soil isn’t well drained, it can cause root rot. Hollies can thrive in partial shade as well. Just make sure that the tree gets at least 3 to 6 hours of early morning or afternoon sun. Afterwards, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball.

 

Pruning Holly Trees & Shrubs

Inspect your tree for any intersecting, damaged, diseased, or dead branches. Once you find the branches you’re going to prune, gradually cut them off starting from the bottom of the tree and work your way up. The best time to prune your tree is during the winter, when the tree is dormant, because hollies grow on new wood.

And This is Why it’s so Important to Prune Your Tree...
Pruning your tree is important for not only the appearance of the tree, but also for the safety of others when dealing with larger trees. Because hollies do not have large branches, you will not have to worry about branches falling and hurting someone. However, in order for your tree to thrive at its best, you should prune your tree since it can help to strengthen the roots, treat diseases, and encourage production too.

 

Vibrant Red Berries!

Don’t think that all hollies have berries. If you do not want the berries, you do have an option. Hollies need a female and male in order to produce vibrant red berries. If you are having a hard time growing them here’s a few tips. A common issue would be that the male tree is too far away from the female. Make sure that the male is within 200 yards of the female shrub. If you over prune or prune too early that can have an effect on the production of your berries as well. If the flowers are not there, or having a hard time growing, then you may not see as many berries.
