Schwoebel’s Upright Japanese Holly is a slender pyramidal evergreen bush that grows to perhaps 8 feet, with a spread at the base of no more than 4 feet. It is densely-branched, and it remains bushy and compact without any trimming. It is also easy to trim for hedges or neat, formal specimens. Although a holly, it has no spines, and it looks more like a boxwood, with thick, glossy leaves Grow it alone or in clusters, or as a hedge. It makes a great specimen for contrast in shrub beds, a useful lawn specimen in smaller gardens, and a plant for large containers.

  • Dense, all-year-round rich green bush
  • Natural pyramidal habit without the need to trim
  • Grows well in most garden conditions
  • Excellent choice for coastal gardens
  • Trouble-free and always attractive

Plant Schwoebel’s Upright Japanese Holly where it is in full sun or partial shade. It grows in sheltered spots in zone 5 and in all warmer zones with ease. Almost any soil is suitable, with some preference for moist, well-drained acidic soils. Water regularly when young (it won’t wilt to tell you it is in trouble), but one established it is drought resistant. It has excellent resistance to salty sea breezes, and good resistance to road salt. As well, pests and diseases are rare, and deer usually leave it alone.
