For a tough native evergreen with dense foliage and winter berries, the American Holly is the perfect choice. This tree will tolerate conditions that other hollies cannot handle, so it is perfect for difficult, low-maintenance sites and country areas.

  • Hardy in hot regions with periods of drought
  • Tolerates urban conditions, poor soil and bad drainage
  • Rich evergreen leaves make a beautiful and reliable screen or specimen
  • Forms a tall screen to 20 or even 30 feet high – block all unsightly views
  • Beautiful red berries liven up the winter months

For screening or specimen planting in poor conditions, this tree is the ideal choice. Deer resistant and drought tolerant when established, it will thrive in full sun or partial shade, needing little or no care to give a dense and beautiful screen in urban and rural areas. Plant the American Holly as a hedge to clip, a natural screen, or as large specimen bushes on your property. Foliage is held right to the ground for many, many years, but can be pruned up for clearance too.
