The Nellie Stevens Holly is widely used as a fast growing formal hedge. Plant 4 to 8 Ft. apart, depending upon your
desired results. Trim when needed but we suggest waiting until after the initial flush of soft spring growth, However it
can be pruned in late winter before the onset of new growth. Nellie Stevens Holly will create a formal dark-green
evergreen screen or box-shaped hedge, similar to a Yew hedge. Nellie Stevens Holly can be kept to any height as long
as you trim it ever one or two years.
You’ll appreciate how these holly trees stay deep green all year,
unlike other hedge trees that can brown out during either the
summer heat or mild droughts. Landscapers have fueled a great
demand for the Nellie Stevens. In addition to being attractive,
these trees can be planted and forgotten. They withstand poor
soil, drought and even neglect.

dense broad pyramidal shape. The leaves on Nellies are glossy with dark green color and are among the darkest of any plant.
