Ilex crenata 'Steeds'
An easy to grow, evergreen shrub with a pyramidal form. Steeds Holly has small oval shaped serrate leaves. The leaves on the new growth are a brighter green color then turn dark green with age which creates a two-tone effect in the spring. The foliage is thick and dense and can be sheared into a formal pyramid or allowed to grow in its natural upright form. Steeds Holly can be used as a hedge row, planted on either side of an door, planted in between windows to add some height, or in an island bed.
