Pollination Info
We carry male and female hollies at our nursery, and you will need both to produce berries on the female plant. However, hollies are hard to tell apart when they are not fruiting, and we can’t guarantee whether you will receive a male or female. For best results, we suggest planting in groups to enjoy berries on the female plants and lush greenery on both year-round.
Needlepoint Holly Care
Needlepoint Hollies grow in full sun or part shade. They are extremely adaptable to just about any soil. 

Holly bushes should to be watered well when planted and kept moist with deep waterings at least once weekly for the first few months. Adding about 2 inches of mulch will help hold in moisture, protect the roots, and keep weeds at bay. Once established Needlepoint Hollies are drought tolerant.

Fertilize your holly shrub when planting and once yearly in spring with a balanced slow release fertilizer.

Needlepoint hollies can be pruned heavily or not at all. Heavy pruning is best saved for winter while light trimming can be done anytime

Plant Needlepoint Hollies in growing zones 7 to 9 for best results.
Landscape ideas
The Needlepoint Holly is great for framing the entrance of your home or driveway. 

This holly functions as a solid anchor for the corners of your home. 

Plant a group of 3 at the corner of your yard for an upscale look. 

The Needlepoint Holly makes an outstanding privacy screen. Plant about 7-8 feet apart for a tight, dense hedge.
