The Nasa Holly is an unusual dwarf holly and a native American tree. It has narrow, spineless leaves and bright red berries in winter. Growing slowly to just a few feet tall, with a narrow, pyramidal habit, it is perfect for smaller gardens, small corners, and for low screening and barriers. It looks neat and lush all year round, with no yellowing or dropping of the leaves, and it is a top choice for more natural parts of the garden, providing valuable winter food for local bird populations. It can also be trimmed and grown in planters and containers for low-maintenance evergreen foliage.

  • Dwarf evergreen bush with narrow, spineless leaves
  • Perfect for small spaces and low screening
  • Bright red berries in winter
  • Salt, deer and rabbit resistant
  • Excellent choice for native gardening

The Nasa Holly will grow in all the warmer states, and it is resistant to heat, humidity, urban conditions and poor soil. It grows well in coastal areas, with good salt-spray resistance, and it is normally never touched by deer or rabbits. It rarely suffers from any pests or diseases, and grows in full sun, partial shade, or the dappled sunlight beneath deciduous trees. A great choice for low-maintenance gardening, this handsome shrub is an attractive addition that will be interesting all year round.
