Holly trees are among the very best of evergreens, but they can grow wide and need a lot of trimming. Not the Dragon Lady Holly! This beautiful tree forms a narrow pyramid as much as 20 feet tall, but only four or five feet wide, meaning it will fit into spots where other hollies cannot venture.

• Easily grown in ordinary soil conditions
• Stays narrow and upright its whole life
• Attractive dark-green spiny leaves deter wildlife and trespassers
• Needs no trimming
• Tolerate shady spots and drought as well

If you need the density and richness of a holly tree but don’t have much space, the Dragon Lady Holly is here to rescue you. This tree keeps its narrow form without any trimming and is always glossy and green at all seasons. It is drought-resistant once established and will thrive in shade as well as sun. This tree is the perfect choice for the smaller garden or those narrow spots that are so hard to fill.
