Color and character are just a click away with our Columnar Evergreens, the perfect pick for year-round greenery. Whether you choose the iconic Sky Pencil or one of our many other Holly Trees, you'll have a fresh landscape and effortless green screening, no matter your space constraints.
Planting and Caring for Columnar Evergreens
Though specific directions will vary, knowing your growing zone is an important first step. After you’ve determined your growing zone, keep sunlight and watering needs in mind for your Columnar Evergreens. Most will prefer full sun to partial sun (anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and well-drained soil, but check the directions for the specific trees you've purchased.
Your fertilizing and pruning needs will vary as well, but many of our Columnar Evergreens do not require pruning, unless you'd like to shape them.
Then, select an area with well-drained soil, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the tree’s root ball (along with some extra width for mature growth), place your tree and back fill the hole. Finish by watering the surrounding soil and mulching to conserve moisture.
Caring for Columnar Evergreens
Keep in mind the mature height and width of your Columnar Evergreen Trees, and plant them away from sidewalks, power lines and structures if they're especially large.
For extra small spaces, we suggest going with a tree like the Sky Pencil Holly because it's more narrow and compact.
But no matter which of our Columnar Evergreens you choose, you'll have a heightened look that doesn't take a ton of room.
