The Top Choice Holly For Privacy Hedges

The Oak Leaf, or ‘Ilex x 'Conaf'’, holly is a new and improved red holly variety that puts its competition to shame. It’s cold hardy, and drought tolerant making it tougher than other types of hollies.

Simply plant your Oak Leaf Hollies and watch them thrive. With their low maintenance nature they’re perfect for planting in a row for a living privacy screen that doesn’t require a lot of upkeep.

Their dense foliage grows together to form a solid emerald green barrier that keeps neighbor’s wandering eyes away. It also stands up as a powerful screen that blocks strong winter winds and snow.

Along with being a versatile hedge, Oak Leaf Hollies are excellent as foundation and ornamental trees. Whether they are standing alone or in a group they radiate beauty with their pyramidal shape and their thick, glossy green oak leaf shaped leaves all year.

In the spring new Oak Leaf Holly emerges with a shade of maroon capturing everyone’s attention before they turn emerald green. Most people have never seen a unique holly such as the Oak Leaf before.

In the fall large red berries pop against the Oak Holly’s emerald green foliage, creating an alluring winter show. Pick a few branches to incorporate the red and golden, emerald green hues into your holiday décor.

The vibrant red berries attract a variety of songbirds that will nest in the foliage for shelter from harsh winter conditions, making Oak Leaf Hollies an excellent choice for bird watchers. 

Oak Leaf Hollies are putting other varieties to shame with their glowing emerald foliage and they are going fast. Don’t hesitate to order yours today, before they sell out.

Beautiful tree
I ordered my oak leaf Holley on Monday and it arrived on Friday. It was very carefully packed and undamaged. It was three foot tall and very healthy, no broken branches or leaf damage. I took it out of the box, watered it and planted it Saturday morning. It looks beautiful in our yard. We are looking forward to watching it grow. I will definitely order my shrubs and trees from this company from now on it is much handier than going to the green house and walking in the heat for hours to find what we want. And it is much more affordable!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Oak Leaf Holly

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Oak Leaf 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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Oak Leaf 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 Oak Leaf Holly again after the transplant is complete.

What is the annual growth rate?
Rob E on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They can grow 1-2 feet per year.
Does the Oak Leaf Holly have one or both genders?
Gail M on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this question.Unlike most hollies, Oak Leaf is a hermaphrodite, containing functionally male and female flower parts in each flower. Therefore, it will be self-fruitful without need for a male pollinator. The flowers are greenish-white, four-petaled, borne in clusters at the nodes but with no ornamental appeal. The berries are orange-red, pea-sized and persist through most of the winter.
Is it self-fertile?
Neville on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Beautiful tree! I have only one tree, lots of red berries, planning on purchasing another one soon.
Do you need a female and male plant to produce the berries?
Merinda on Dec 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine this spring and it has berries. I just went and looked for you. I only have the one.
How far apart would you plant the oak leaf hollies for privacy?
Michael S on Sep 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Taking into account that they mature around 12-15 ft, wide, plant on a 6/7 ft center, providing ample room for growth. One could also offset the plants if you have the space in which case you could plant a little closer together. Hope this helps!
What best insect control chemical would a person apply to Oak leaf Holy?
Michael W on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Neem oil extract or botanical oil sprays can help with insect control.
