Adaptable Dwarf Form Suits Any Location

Why Steeds Japanese Holly Shrubs?

Dense green foliage, a neat upright form, and virtually no upkeep...with the Steeds Japanese Holly, you get a full landscape transformation in one sleek package. Plus, unlike many other varieties, it offers extra interest with small white flowers and ornamental berries.

This small black fruit emerges throughout the winter, creating a unique centerpiece for graceful wildlife in your garden. From low shrubbery and hedging to tall groundcovers, the Steeds' habit, steady growth rate, and smaller leaves make it well-suited for any area.

Planted in groups, the Steeds' well-branched, pyramidal forms mold together to form a polished, tidy sea of rich evergreen color. And you get it all without excessive pruning or care.

Pollination Info

Steeds Japanese Holly Shrub Pollination

We carry male and female hollies at our nursery, and you will need both to produce berries on the female plant. However, hollies are hard to tell apart when they are not fruiting, and we can’t guarantee whether you will receive a male or female. For best results, we suggest planting in groups to enjoy berries on the female plants and lush greenery on both year-round.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Your Steeds Japanese Holly Shrub is highly adaptable, but it’s important to select the right location – preferably one that receives 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day and with well-drained soil. After selecting a location, dig a hole that’s two to three times the size of your shrub’s root ball, place your shrub, then backfill the soil while tamping down the soil to avoid air pockets. After planting, water to settle your shrub’s roots.

2. Watering: Water your Steeds Holly weekly, or more often in extreme heat. If you’re not sure when to water your shrub, simply check its surrounding soil down to about 2 or 3 inches. If the soil here is dry, water your shrub.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Steeds Holly Shrub with a general-purpose fertilizer in early spring.

4. Pruning: If you want a neater appearance for your Steeds Holly Shrub, prune or shear annually in winter to shape it.

Beautiful Steeds

Bought 2 packs of 4 Steeds Holly, 1-2 feet; however, all were less than a foot tall, yet well packed and fresh. Arrived in literally two days after they were shipped. Will purchase again from Fast Growing Trees. This online company is good for guaranteed freshness and quick delivery, although a bit pricy compared to other online garden stores. Gave 4 stars because of the small size of all plants and I wish they were taller.

From the moment the scrubs came until we planted them they have been amazing. Just what we needed to start our privacy fence. Thank you so much. We look forward to ordering more.
