Product Description

Popular Hedge for Complete Year-Round Privacy

Why Nellie Stevens Holly Trees?

The Nellie Stevens has soared in popularity. Why? Well, for starters, it's the ideal selection for both hedging and privacy screening, especially since it grows up to 3 feet each year.

Plus, it thrives on neglect. No green thumb is no problem since they grow in sun or partial shade. And you'll appreciate how these holly trees stay deep green year-round, unlike other hedge trees that can brown out during either the summer heat or mild droughts.

Plant each Nellie Stevens Holly 5 to 6 feet apart for a living wall that gives you complete privacy, no holes, and no gaps. You control how they grow - whether that's naturally into a dense, pyramidal shape that matures at 15 to 25 feet in height or pruned into a tall box hedge.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

We plant, grow and nurture our Nellie Stevens for best results. That means you get effortless, amazing-growing benefits without hassle on your part. Once your Nellie is shipped to your door, it's ready to grow and adapt easily in your own landscape.

However, a few of our plants don’t live up to our high standards on occasion: they might be a bit crooked or missing some limbs, but they are still high-quality plants that need a home!

That means we’ve discounted your Nellie Stevens Holly heavily to make room for fresh inventory. Given the nature of these plants, we are not able to offer our standard warranty but hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to give them a home!

You won't find a better privacy screen at such a low price. These will sell out shortly, so hurry and grab a few Nellie Stevens of your own!

I do

I’ve ordered three (3) different times. I’d recommend these for evergreen privacy with a sprinkle of red berries during the colder months.

Quality trees

My Holly's were well packed and very healthy. All appear to be thriving 5 months in the ground. Only my river birch didn't make it. Down side is short warranty. River birch appeared to be shocked when I planted it. But leaves never grew. With 30 day warranty...hard to tell normal transplanting changes and plant dying. Overall happy with products. All were very healthy on arrival. Planted within a day...one out of 8 didn't make it. Not bad.

Very healthy

Looks great. But planted where no one walks due to the spines. Couldn't look any greener.

Very Nice!

Good web site shopping and ordering. Eight Trees arrived in four boxes via FedEx in basically perfect condition. Put them in the ground 4 days later and they’re all doing great. Only negative comment is the long delay to ship without notice.


Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a planting area with full sun to partial shade (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). They need the sun to develop the pretty red fruits, and while Hollies have both male and female plants, Nellie Stevens is a variety that produces berries reliably without a male around for pollination.

To plant your Nellie (be sure to wear gloves), dig a hole as deep as the tree’s root ball and twice as wide. Remove the tree from the container and place in the hole (this is where the gloves come in handy) If the tree’s root ball is situated lower than the surrounding soil, pick up the tree and add some more soil to the hole.

Fill in around the tree with a 50/50 blend of the native soil you removed from the planting hole and a mixture of gardening soil. Mulch around your tree with shredded hardwood or pine straw.

2. Watering: Nellie Stevens is fairly drought tolerant. 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.

A good rule of thumb for watering broad-leaf evergreens (trees with wide evergreen leaves) is to water deeply (count to forty on each plant) once a week for the month before the ground typically freezes. If you have several days above 50 to 60 degrees in the winter, it doesn’t hurt to give your Nellie Stevens Holly trees a drink.

3. Pruning: Holly Trees grow tall and shapely without much pruning. If you want a bushier, rounder form, cut off the top of the tree. This will cause buds in the interior of the tree to sprout and the tree will have a fuller look. You can also hedge or prune these trees for shape. Always cut back to a leaf to hide your pruning cuts.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize Hollies in the spring and fall with special fertilizer made for acid-loving plants. Holly-Tone is widely used for fertilizing.
