Soft, Lush Leaves for a Holly
Why Oakland Holly Trees?
If you’re seeking the conical shape of an evergreen tree without the needles, consider the Oakland Holly. This tree earns its name from its characteristically-shiny holly leaves that are shaped like oak leaves with their multiple lobes.
The overall effect is a shapely, year-round green tree that'll make an obvious impact in front of your house or, because of its density, as part of a privacy hedge. No matter where it's planted, the Oakland Holly will create an eye-catching presentation.
This stately tree grows to be about 12-20 feet tall and 8-15 feet wide, with leaves that are about three inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Plus, it'll maintain its dense, lush, emerald green leaves for extended landscape interest and appeal.

Oakland® Holly Tree Pollination
This holly has both male and female flowers on the same plant meaning no pollinator is needed to enjoy the berries. One holly will produce berries, but will still benefit from other hollies planted nearby.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Holly in an area that receives full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). For a hedge or privacy screen, plant your Hollies about 5-10 feet apart, depending on how dense you want your hedge to be. And make sure that your Holly doesn't sit in a low area of the yard that collects standing water.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's about 2 to 3 times the width of the root ball (and just as deep), place your Holly, and backfill the soil. Add organic material to your soil to lighten the texture and improve drainage. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil to preserve moisture, and water once planting is complete.
2. Watering: Keep your soil moist until your tree is established. Once your Holly is established, it's drought tolerant and only needs extra water during dry spells. Until then, we recommend watering about once weekly or checking the surrounding soil for dryness (use your finger to check the soil about 2 inches down).
3. Fertilizing: Each year, in early spring, fertilize your Holly with a slow-release fertilizer for an acid-loving shrub (something like Holly-Tone).
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
