The Fine Line Holly is a beautiful upright column of rich, evergreen foliage, that makes the perfect accent in a bed, or a specimen in a lawn. It has a fine gold line around the edge of the almost-spineless leaves, and it produces a rich crop of deep-red berries in fall, that last well into the winter. You will be cutting branches and wreathes to decorate your home for the holiday season, while enjoying the beauty of this tree in every month of the year. A selected form of the Chinese holly, this is the number-one pick for hotter states and drier conditions, and it grows in the South so much better than more common types do. With its bold upright form, this tree is the best way to get those important accent points into your garden, with almost no maintenance necessary.

  • The best holly for hot and dry areas
  • Excellent narrow upright shape without trimming
  • Good berry crop in fall and most of winter too
  • For full sun or shade
  • Grows in most soils, including clays and poor soil

Plant your Fine Line Holly bushes in full sun or partial shade. The growth will be a little more open in shade, but that is easily regulated by trimming. It will grow in almost any kind of soil, including poor urban soils, clays, and other low-grade soil conditions. It should not be planted in poorly-drained locations that are constantly wet. Once established this is one of the most drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant hollies available, and it is rarely bothered by pests or diseases. Deer usually leave it alone, and it resists salt-spray too.
