Nellie R. Stevens Holly, Ilex x Nellie R. Stevens

Plant Description

The Nellie R. Stevens holly is a broadleaf evergreen that is known for hardiness and resilient growing nature. The Nellie R. Stevens is a beautiful evergreen holly for the landscape. The Nellie R. Stevens holly is described as self polinating, meaning it does not necessarily require a male polinator to produce berries, as with other hollies. Although not necessarily required, other male hollies, if used as polinators, can help the Nellie R. Stevens holly produce more spectacular berries in greater quantities. The Nellie Stevens holly has a sweet smell when in flower and is attractive to bees and butterflies. The Nellie R. Stevens has lustrous, dark green leaves and abundant bright red berries that attract birds. Leaves are among the darkest of any Holly. Vigorous and fast-growing, this Holly quickly grows into an attractive, broad pyramidally-shaped evergreen, 20 to 30 feet high and 10 to 12 feet wide.

We are now taking orders for our Nellie R. Stevens rooted cuttings for Winter & Spring 2012.

Planting Instructions - Dig a hole three times the diameter of the root system, with a depth no deeper than the original soil line on trunk. Break up the soil to the finest consistency possible. Place plant in hole and fill, compacting the fill dirt. Water the plant heavily to seal soil around the roots and remove air pockets. Fertilize according to the recommendation of your local agriculture extension agents, or fertilize based on your own knowledge and experience.
