Dr. Kassab Holly is a compact, pyramidal holly that grows only 15 to 20 feet wide, with a spread, even unclipped, of barely 10 feet. It keeps its branches to the ground well, making it perfect for hedges and trimmed specimens. Its dark-green leaves have few spines, and it carries a huge crop of large red berries from late fall through most of the winter months. It is a perfect choice for hedges and trimmed specimens, out in the garden or around your home. It also grows well left untrimmed in natural wooded areas.

  • Perfect pyramidal form for specimens or hedges
  • Massive crop of brilliant red berries all through winter
  • Attractive dark-green foliage
  • Very few spines, so easy to handle
  • Drought and heat resistant

Full sun or partial shade both suit Dr. Kassab Holly perfectly. It is hardy from zone 6 into all the hotter zones, and it tolerates heat and dryness much better than many other holly bushes. It can easily be trimmed to keep it compact. Pests and diseases are rare, and deer usually ignore it. Trim in late spring and late summer, or in mid-summer to best keep the berry crop.
