A Big Plant for BIG Impact

This is one big boy! Putting on a full foot in the spring each year, Oakleaf Holly quickly grows to its mature 15 feet high and 8 feet wide. Do you need a huge hedge to keep unwanted people and animals out (or in!)? Several of these big boys make a massive, spiky shielding hedge.

Oakleaf is the premier holly with charming leaves shaped like - you guessed it – oak leaves. You might be surprised to know that, unlike many other hollies, the new leaves that pop out in the spring on this evergreen start out bronze or even burgundy colored. They stay this beautiful sheen for a couple of weeks before they mature into that deep classic holly green.

One of the best features of the Oakleaf Holly, though, is that it doesn’t require another holly to pollinate, so you can be sure that you will get masses of bright orange-red berries all fall and winter.

Even though these giants are a little too big for most foundation plantings if left to their own devices, they take a shearing like a champ and can be kept at whatever size you’d like. Full sun, light shade, rich soil, clay – these plants don’t need to be babied.

If you need a massive, quick growing shrub that stays green year round, then you’ve found your plant. Order several to complete your foundation planting today!

* Tough evergreen
* Sun or shade
* Berries all winter
