How To Care

Hollies tolerate full sun to part sun. They prefer a slightly acidic soil, but tend to adapt just about any well draining soil. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist. Mulching is highly recommended in cooler zones to protect the plant's roots in winter as well. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Steeds Holly deeply a couple times a week for the first few months. After your Hollies are established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Fertilize in spring with our special slow release fertilizer. A Steeds Holly can tolerate pruning well if you want to keep them a certain size or shape. Heavy pruning is best reserved for late winter or early spring for the perfect Dwarf Tree look.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Mites and scale are insects that can occasionally affect the Steeds Holly. These can be treated with horticultural oil. For severe infections the pesticide Bonide is recommended. Avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues in Hollies.

Landscape Ideas

The Steeds Holly can be used for a number of different designs. Try placing one on each side of your front door for an elegant look. If you have an existing hedge, plant steeds hollies on each end. They will anchor the hedge giving it some character. Get creative, plant your steeds holly then 5 boxwood shrubs, then another steeds holly, etc. Keep the motion going and give it a twist. This is a great shrub for building medium size hedges. Plant each shrub 3-5 feet on center for creating a hedge. If you are a fan of Hollies, also consider the Oakland HollySteeds Holly and Nellie Stevens Holly.

Nice shrub

I bought a steeds holly. It was smaller than I expected. It is very healthy and has already growing. Can’t wait for it to fill in its space.

Excellent Experience

This is the second time ordering from Planting Tree. Both times have been amazing experiences. Plants arrived on time or sooner than expected and in great condition. I will definitely order from Planing Tree again. Actually I won't order from any other online nursery, and I've tried a few. Planting Tree is by far the best!

Just what I expected.

Ordering was easy and the products are beautiful. Shrubs are big enough to allow me to plan the next move of my curb appeal. They arrived well packaged and alive. So far so good. I liked them enough to order more plantings from the Planting Tree.
