Holly - NeedlepointIlex cornuta 'Needlepoint'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 7-9
Well suited for low-maintenance landscapes, the Needlepoint Holly is a rapid grower and will quickly add a spectacular addition to your garden or landscape. It is a hardy holly with lustrous, dark green, spiny leaves. If pollinated, the clusters of inconspicuous flowers in spring give way to abundant red fruits in fall which lasts through winter. What's more, the Needlepoint Holly's leaves don't have the multiple prongs you'd normally see in hollies. Instead, each leaf has a single point, hence the shrub's name. When Needlepoint Holly is planted close together a dense hedge forms a great foundation, hedge, border, or screen. Others use it a specimen plant to add evergreen color to their landscaping. The Needlepoint Holly is notably low-maintenance - it thrives in moist well-drained soil, and thrives in partial to full sun. This easy-care holly is also resistant to just about every gardening problem - salt, heat, drought, disease, and even hungry deer. Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit. We do not sex our hollies and cannot guarantee which gender you will receive. Needlepoint is a Chinese holly.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Very healthy plant, much larger than expected. Packaged well, fast shipping. Would definitely buy again.
