Holly Trees

Hollies are prized by many for their rich and glossy forest-green foliage, making them the perfect option for privacy screens and hedges. In the fall, vibrant red berries will begin to produce for a stylish ornamental look during the winter. Whether you want the more common Nellie Stevens or American Holly, or something more sleek and modern like the Sky Pencil, Holly Trees are the perfect options for quality greenery.

How Big Do Holly Trees Grow?

Hollies can fulfill all of your needs when it comes to versatility. Commonly used as a privacy screen, or hedge, to block out unsightly views, Holly Trees are a timeless favorite. And because they vary in size and shape, you'll have the perfect selection that's tailor-made for your landscape.

Different Types of Holly Trees


Nellie Stevens Holly: A mix between a Chinese and English Holly, this medium tree is one of our most popular privacy hedges. Admired for its glossy green foliage year-round, and the radiant red berries that grow in the fall, it's a go-to for privacy.
American Holly: This holly can adapt to almost any kind of soil and remains fully branched to the ground as it matures. Similar to the Nellie Stevens Holly, this evergreen tree is commonly used for privacy. The only difference between these two popular hollies is that the American Holly doesn’t grow as fast as the Nellie Stevens annually.
Oak Leaf Holly: The Oak Leaf Holly has no competition when it comes to tolerance. Unlike many in its family, this tree is the hardiest and toughest. Commonly used as an ornamental, this tree will put on a show year-round. With its large red berries against its polished dark green leaves during the fall then hues of maroon to emerald green in the spring, it's a showstopper.
Winter Red Winterberry: Hollies usually thrive best in warmer temperatures, like the south, but not when it comes to the Winter Red Winterberry. Hardy down to -30 degrees, this tree is perfect for Growing Zones 3 through 9! This female deciduous tree will surely give you all of the beauty that other hollies give before losing its leaves during the winter.
Apollo Winterberry: This Male Winterberry pollinates with the Winter Red Winterberry. This tree thrives in the cold and heat and can pollinate up to six Winter Red Winterberries by itself! Though Apollo does not produce berries, this tree still grows creamy white flowers during the late spring.
Sky Pencil Holly: This maintenance-free tree gives you a sleek modern look without the work. The Sky Pencil Holly can be used as an ornamental or can accent your home in rows for a narrow hedge. The choice is up to you! Forget about pruning and let the Sky Pencil do its thing.

When is the Best Time to Plant Holly Trees?



Any time, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. However, the best time to plant your tree is when your holly has enough time to get those roots established before it is exposed to high heat. Therefore, for the best results, plant your tree in cooler seasons like the fall or spring.


How to Plant Holly Trees

When planting your Holly Tree, it is important that you pick a spot that gets at least 6 to 8 hours of full sunlight per day and has well-drained soil. Hollies can thrive in partial shade as well. Just make sure that the tree gets at least 3 to 6 hours of early morning or afternoon sun. Afterwards, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball.

How and When to Prune Holly Trees


Inspect your tree for any intersecting, damaged, diseased, or dead branches. Once you find the branches you’re going to prune, gradually cut them off starting from the bottom of the tree and work your way up. The best time to prune your tree is during the winter, when the tree is dormant, because hollies grow on new wood.

In order for your tree to thrive at its best, you should prune your tree since it can help to strengthen the roots, treat diseases, and encourage production, too.
