The Mary Nell Holly is a hybrid bush bred especially for hotter and drier areas, like the southeast. This impressive evergreen reaches 20 to 25 feet tall, with a broad pyramidal form. The leaves are large and oval, with an edging of spines, looking almost ruffled, and they are a rich, dark green all year round. They are a notable feature of this bush, and so is the huge crop of berries it produces. These cluster all along the branches, and they are large and bright red. Grow this tree as a lawn specimen, as screening, at the back of beds, or in woodlands.

  • Upright pyramidal evergreen with beautiful foliage
  • Large, rich green, oval leaves edged in spines
  • Massive clusters of bright red berries all along the branches
  • Very tough and reliable in the heat and drought of the southeast
  • Produces berries even in shade, and without a male tree

Plant your Mary Nell Holly in full sun or partial shade. It still produces berries when grown in shade, unlike most other hollies. It is very tolerant of drier soils when it is established, and it thrives in most soils that are well-drained. Pests, diseases and deer usually don’t bother it, and it can be trimmed or left to grow naturally, as you choose.
