    More about Steeds Holly...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Steeds holly, Ilex Crenata 'Steeds', is an evergreen holly that has a pyramidal shape. Being a Japanese holly it has small shiny oval shaped, boxwood-like leaves. The shiny leaves are a medium green on the new foliage and then turn darker with age. During late summer to fall Steeds Holly will produce an abundant amount of dark purple-blue berries that are good for adding winter color and attracting wildlife.

    Uses

    Steeds Holly is the perfect choice for planting on both sides of a door or other entryway. It is also useful planted between windows in home foundation plantings and in containers. When spaced more closely together, it will make a good hedge.

    Culture & Care Tips

    The Steeds Holly is easy to grow in locations that provide well-drained, acidic 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. Though Steeds Holly will keep a natural, loose, pyramidal shape on it's own, a once or twice a year shearing is helpful to keep the shrub more dense.
