Nellie Stevens Holly (Ilex x 'Nellie R. Stevens') is a popular evergreen holly cultivar that is commonly used as a landscape plant. It is a hybrid between the Chinese holly (Ilex cornuta) and the English holly (Ilex aquifolium). This cultivar was developed for its attractive features and hardiness. Here are some key features and information about Nellie Stevens Holly:

  1. Foliage: The holly features glossy, dark green leaves with a serrated edge. The leaves are typically oval to elliptical in shape.

  2. Size: Nellie Stevens Holly is known for its fast growth and upright, pyramidal form. It can reach a height of 15 to 25 feet and a width of 8 to 12 feet, making it suitable as a privacy screen, hedge, or specimen plant.

  3. Berries: Nellie Stevens Holly is self-pollinating holly, meaning they will produce berries with no male required.

  4. Flowers: Inconspicuous white flowers appear in spring. These flowers are generally not the main ornamental feature of the plant.

  5. Sun Requirements: Nellie Stevens Holly prefers full sun to partial shade. It tends to have denser foliage in full sun.

  6. Soil and Watering: It thrives in well-drained soil but is adaptable to a variety of soil types. Regular watering, especially during dry periods, promotes healthy growth.

  7. Hardiness: Nellie Stevens Holly is hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 6 to 9.

  8. Disease Resistance: This holly cultivar is generally resistant to many common holly diseases and pests. However, proper care and good garden hygiene can help prevent potential issues.

  9. Landscape Use: Nellie Stevens Holly is commonly used as a privacy screen, windbreak, or as a specimen plant in residential and commercial landscapes. It is often chosen for its fast growth and ability to create a dense barrier.

  10. Pruning: Pruning can be done to shape the plant and control its size. Regular maintenance pruning can help keep the plant looking neat and attractive.
