How To Care

Be sure to choose the appropriate location for your Oakland Holly. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Holly almost any time of the year.

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 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 a slow release fertilizer for broad leaf evergreens. Oakland Hollies don't require pruning, but they tolerate it well if you prefer to keep them a certain size or shape. Heavy pruning is best reserved for late winter or early spring.

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 Hollies. 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 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.

Make a good hedge

We planted these trees down the driveway 4 years ago. Now they are about 8 feet tall and looking great. I’m so glad we choose these. They said they would get dense and boy were they right! Thinking about doing the other side.
