Nellie Stevens Hollies are a hybrid of the Chinese and English holly and are considered a fast-growing tree, potentially growing 3 feet per year. When the trees are planted between 5 and 6 feet apart, they can provide a dense hedge or form a privacy screen. When planted in this way, Nellie Stevens Hollies can mature to a height between 15 and 25 feet.
The Winterberry Holly has a soft leaf as opposed to the American Holly which has the pointy leaf. One male plant can polinate 6-10 female plants which produce the beautiful red berries. Keep in mind this is not a fast growing deciduous plant. It will drop its leaves in winter, but the red berries will really pop in your landscape against a stark winter background.
Your tree arrives 5 foot -6 foot tall.
