Decorative Holly with Winter Interest

The Castle Spire Holly is an evergreen Holly. It works well as a hedge or foundation plant. It’s also a lovely specimen planting for a front or side yard.

Your Castle Spire is a variety of blue holly that is compact and pyramidal in form. It was developed with improved branching and an even more lustrous, classic holly leaf. It’s charming year-round, but really shines in the winter months.

Imagine a 10 foot tall narrow holly, its blue-green, glossy foliage dusted with ivory snowflakes and adorned with brilliant scarlet berries. You can almost see a red Cardinal or Blue Jay sitting among its branches just like in a Christmas card. It’s a stunning display to be sure!

The Castle Spire Holly prefers to avoid winter winds so it would love to be nestled close to your home or other evergreens. It’s deer resistant so you don’t have to worry about them coming around for a quick nibble, and it can tolerate both sun and shade.

You don’t have to prune it, but you’ll certainly want to when the holidays roll around. The foliage makes outstanding decorations for the holiday season. It's long-lived, commonly thriving for 40 years or more, and fills out nicely all the way to ground level, so you won’t have to consider planting facer plants around it.

The Castle Spire Holly is a superior plant for your landscape. It’s lovely year-round but spectacular in the winter months, care free and the birds love it. You can’t go wrong with a Castle Spire Holly.

Perfect Review by Great winter color
I bought 2 to put in the back corners of my yard, near the back fence. The classic bright green leaves & red berries in winter are so beautiful. Thanks Nature Hills!
pyramidal holly Review by ST. Nick
I call this plant my Christmas tree holly as it is shaped just like an evergreen tree. The Christmas lights look very bright against the dark green foliage. Castle Spire has such a classic look. I love it!
Need more hollies Review by Beaver
I put 3 castle spire holly bushes along a fence a few years ago. Now i'm back to buy more. I might also look at the nellie stevens holly.
Nice Tree Review by Gary
I chose this holly because I was looking for an evergreen that didn't get too tall or too wide. I was very happy and surprised that a holly fit the bill. It will fit perfectly in a corner of our yard.
