Pyramidal Holly

Better than Boxwood

When you think of holly, maybe you think of Christmas berries and spiky leaves. Pyramidal Holly, Ilex crenata 'Bullata 151', will change that opinion. For starters, the leaves on this Japanese holly aren’t big and spiky, but small and spineless, almost soft to the touch.

This plant looks far more like boxwood than holly. As a matter of fact it is a great substitute for boxwood, especially in zones 6 and 7, where it grows faster than boxwood.

Pyramidal Holly can grow real big, real fast if you let it. At 10 feet tall a few of these plants shoulder to shoulder make a thick, formal hedge. But, like boxwood, this can be pried and trimmed to any size/shape you want. It naturally grows into a pyramid shape, as its name states, but will happily become whatever shape you want.

This evergreen shrub will add great structure to your perennial bed or foundation planting. They are often used to mark entryways. Pyramid Holly looks great in a large pot, too.

They will stay dark green and glossy all year long, no matter what the weather. Use Pyramidal Hollies as a backdrop to other evergreens for a great textural contrast. Flowering trees and shrubs really pop in front of a hedge of Pyramid Holly.
