More About Heleri Holly...

Noteworthy Characteristics

Heleri Holly is a low mounding evergreen shrub with small, rounded, boxwood-like, dark green leaves. It responds very well to shearing making it an excellent selection for a low formal hedge or tiight "mushroom cap" shape that hugs the ground. 


It's naturally dense and mounding habit to about 2-3 feet in height with a spread of 4-6 feet, and the fact that it responds very well to shearing, makes the Heleri one of the best evergreen shrubs for use in foundation plantings. The shrub can be kept to about half its mature size with regular pruning or shearing. It can also be useful as an underplanting for mid-size trees such as Crape Myrtle and Japanese Maples, or as a low-growing natural to formal hedge. 

Culture & Care Tips

The Helleri Holly is easy to grow in locations that provide well-drained soil and full sun to light shade. Avoid planting in soils that remain consistently soggy as this will cause problems with the roots. It is drought tolerant when established only requiring supplemental irrigation during prolonged periods of drought during summer.
