The Jersey Knight American Holly is a reliable evergreen bush, that will soon grow to at least 8 feet and ultimately pass 20 feet tall, if untrimmed. It has a particularly dense habit, with branches to the ground until it is mature, or permanently if it is regularly trimmed. The leaves are exceptionally dark, and a rich, glossy green. Plant it as a hedge or a lawn specimen, at the back of large shrub beds or on the edges of woodland areas. This is a male tree and an excellent pollinator for almost all varieties of female holly trees, bringing big crops of red berries to them.

  • Dense, full evergreen bush or small tree
  • Exceptionally dark foliage
  • Excellent for hedges and lawn specimens
  • Pollinates many berry-carrying holly bushes
  • Drought resistant

Grow the Jersey Knight American Holly in full sun or partial shade, from zone 5 to zone 9. Plenty of sun in northern areas, and afternoon shade in the south is ideal. Plant it in rich, moist, well-drained garden soil, and this tough tree grows well in most gardens, being drought-resistant once it is established. Avoid wet areas and standing water. Pests and diseases are rare, and deer usually avoid it. Trim in late spring and late summer, if needed.
