Needlepoint is a Chinese holly. The Chinese hollies are dioecious, with small white-green flowers in the late spring and early summer. The beautiful bright red berries appear right before Christmas providing food for birds. Needlepoint differs slightly from other Chinese hollies with the slightly narrow, twisted leaves with a single spine at the tip. The upright growth habit allows it to be a medium to medium-large hedge. It has a medium growth rate and reaches a mature height of about 8-12 feet with a spread of 10-12 feet. Once established, it is heat and drought tolerant. It grows best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil that is slightly acidic. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
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.

Plant hollies in full sun or partial shade and in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soil (pH 5.0-6.0). However, flowering and subsequent fruiting is reduced in shady locations. This holly is drought-tolerant and easy to grow once established. The best time to plant is in the spring or fall. After planting, mulch creating a 2 inch layer, but do not let the mulch get too close to the trunk. Hollies require little pruning unless you want to create a formal hedge.
