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.

    Small but healthy. Pots were a bit dry on arrival, but are doing fine after planting.

    Look great!

    Just received. Haven’t planted yet as we are going to have another freeze, but then they are going in! Sure hope the deer leave them alone!

    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.

    These Are The Best

    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.
