Fastest Growing Holly  

The Nellie Steven Holly, Ilex x 'Nellie R. Stevens', is a very fast growing evergreen that provides year-round privacy. With a growth rate of up to three feet a year, it is an ideal choice for privacy screens and hedges.

The Nellie Stevens Holly is naturally dense and grows to a large pyramidal shape, maturing at 15-25 feet with a spread of 8-10 feet. However, it can be easily shaped into a tall box hedge or even a small tree.

Its leaves are a beautiful, glossy dark green color all year long, even in the heat of summer.

You’ll love the petite, creamy white flowers in the spring, a sure sign that your holly will produce an abundance of brilliant red berries. The crimson berries against dark green leaves makes for a stunning winter display.

The winter interest is the main reason for owning a holly. Cut branches to decorate your home during the holidays. You can also watch as the birds enjoy the berries right off the shrub.

The Nellie Stevens Holly is as durable as it is beautiful. It is becoming more popular with landscapers for its' fast growth rate and hardiness. It also can withstand more shade than any other evergreen. They can also withstand poor soil, drought, summer heat and even neglect.

Plant the Nellie Stevens Holly five to six feet apart to achieve complete privacy with a living wall, or use it as an accent to create texture and color in your yard.

* Abundant Brilliant Red Berries
