Ilex ‘Nellie R. Stevens’

(aquifolium x cornuta)

Nellie R. Stevens Holly

Zone 6–9. Tall evergreen shrub or small pyramidal tree to 15–20' H. Considered best of hollies for hedge although requires heavy pruning 2–3 times per year to maintain hedge; probably better suited to specimen plant that is pruned lightly once a year until maturity; beautiful glossy foliage and red fruit make it perfect for cuttings at Christmas time.
