Brass Buckles Holly: One of the smallest Japanese hollies available, Brass Buckle Holly shines all year long because of its glossy, clear yellow, burn-resistant foliage. It’s perfectly suited to edging walks and borders, as a container plant in milder climates, or as a striking accent in a rock garden. Makes a great and bright replacement for boxwoods.
Helleri Holly: Helleri Holly is a low mounding evergreen shrub with small, rounded, boxwood-like, dark green leaves. It responds very well to shearing making it an excellent selection for a low formal hedge or tight rounded shape that hugs the ground.

Ilex Glabra Densa Inkberry Holly: Ilex Glabra Densa is a selection of our native inkberry that has a broad upright habit and holds its foliage at the base of the plant. This compact holly tolerates heat, drought, sun, shade and transplanting and grows exceptionally well in urban areas. Flowers give way to jet black ink-berries in late spring which mature in early fall and persist through the winter to early spring unless consumed by local birds.
Ilex Glabra Nordic: Ilex glabra Nordic has a compact, rounded habit that needs little pruning to maintain a formal look. It grows well in sun or part shade with supplemental water in exposed locations. Nordic is a male variety that flowers but does not produce fruit but is needed for other Ilex glabra species to produce the jet black berries.

Steeds Holly: Steeds Holly is an easy to grow, densely branched evergreen shrub with a natural pyramidal form. Lustrous dark green foliage adds color to the landscape year-round. Perfect when used to frame a front entryway.
Dragon Lady Holly: Considered to be the perfect columnar holly. New flush is dark glossy green foliage with a very apparent reddish tint. Scarlet fruits mature in the fall and remain on the plant through winter.
How to Care for your Evergreen Holly Shrubs:
Hollies are best planted in Full to Partial Sun as this brings out the darkest color in the foliage and is best for producing berries. Very little is needed as far as care is concerned with Evergreen Hollies. A supplemental watering is sometimes beneficial during periods of prolonged drought but is not necessary once the plants are established.There is probably no shrub that is more happy to be trimmed but it is certainly not a requirement to holly health. Doing this in the spring is the best opportunity as the plant has the most vigor during the spring.
