With their green, narrow, twisted leaves and colorful, bright red berries that last all the way through winter, Needlepoint Holly will bring the curb appeal to your property in no time! This Ilex cornuta ‘Needlepoint’ is also valued for its rapid growth rate, so we like to plant them as a dense privacy hedge, where these large shrubs block out unwanted views in style! They are also an excellent choice for borders and used as accent or foundation plants. If you are looking for a quick way to add curb appeal, Needlepoint Holly will do it!

Needlepoint Holly keeps its lush look all year long and is easy to take care of and maintain. If you want a neat and tidy appearance, feel free to shear it to shape once a year. They are heat and drought tolerant too and require little to moderate water once established. This Ilex cultivar likes to grow in locations that have full sun to partial shade exposures, and they benefit from being fed with fertilizer before the new growth begins in the spring. Big Tex has the ideal fertilizer available for treating Houston’s dense soil, so be sure to pick some up while you are here!
