The Top Choice Holly for Privacy Hedges
Why Oak Leaf Holly Trees?
The Oak Leaf Holly is a new and improved red holly variety that ticks all the boxes of a landscape favorite. 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 - they’re perfect for planting in a row for a living privacy screen that doesn’t require a lot of upkeep.
Plus, the Oak Leaf's dense foliage grows together to form a solid emerald green barrier, standing up as a powerful screen that blocks strong winter winds and snow. 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 grow emerges with a shade of maroon, capturing everyone’s attention before they turn emerald green. During 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great service and healthy products. Plants are well protected during shipment. My Oakleaf holly was a little on the small size.
I bought 25 Oak Leaf Holly trees which I planted along our back fence. They arrived in about three days and were in great condition from their packing boxes. I worked with Gena and she recommended they be planted every six feet for privacy. Gena was professional and easy to work with answering all my questions! I will be buying more plants from this firm in the Spring!
Gena was very helpful and knowledgeable. The plants came in well packaged, and in good condition. I followed Gena's directions, and although my Oakleaf Hollies have only been planted for a few weeks, they seem to be doing well.
The Oak leaf Holly tree was healthy but very small.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Oak Leaf Hollies prefer full to partial sun, so plant in an area with 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day, along with well-drained soil.
Dig the hole as deep as and approximately twice the width of the root ball. Holding the tree, carefully place it into the hole and make sure that the roots are not curling upwards. Back fill the soil, water to settle the roots, and cover the entire planting area with an organic mulch.
2. Watering: Once the roots are established, your Oak Leaf Holly will not need much supplemental watering. Be sure to inspect the tree and surrounding soil for extreme dryness during extended winter dry spells and water if necessary.
3. Fertilizing: We recommend not fertilizing unless your Oak Leaf begins losing its dark green color due to a lack of nutrients. If necessary, just a tablespoon of balanced fertilizer (labeled 12-12-12) sprinkled on top of the ground around the tree will suffice.
