Ilex ‘Nellie R. Stevens’ – Holly tree 6-8cm girth

Ilex ‘Nellie R. Stevens’ is a tough evergreen tree with dark green, glossy leaves, that have far fewer spines than the common Holly, and white flowers that emerge in spring. Nellie R. Stevens is a self-pollinating hybrid which means that it will produce an abundance of red berries in the autumn, regardless of whether the plant is male or female. This shallow rooted tree is an excellent choice for smaller gardens owing to its slow growth rate and ability to be clipped and shaped. The standard trees have a 1.8-2m clear stem with a bushy head of foliage that is designed to sit above a standard 6ft fence panel in order to create a stilted hedge that will form a screen to provide gardens with privacy without encroaching on the rest of the garden. If only one tree is required, the Holly can be strategically placed to screen unsightly views.
