Nellie Stevens Holly
Nellie Stevens Holly is considered by some to be the Grand Dame Holly of Southern Landscapes. Used extensively in the South, it would be difficult to drive very far and not see them in use somewhere. This plant is also successfully used further north into Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and coastal New York.
Attributes include relatively fast growth for a holly, beautiful foliage and berries as well as the ability to be used as a corner foundation plant as well as in screening.
It can be a bit more susceptible to deer browsing due to its more pliable branching structure. If deer are an issue, you should consider Emily Bruner Holly as a substitution.
