Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Light pruning can be done to shape the shrub and maintain a tidy appearance, best performed in late winter to early spring.

Fertilization: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to promote healthy growth and berry production.

Winter Protection: While generally hardy, providing some mulch at the base can offer additional winter protection, particularly in colder parts of the growing zone.


For best results, plant the Needlepoint Holly in well-drained soil, enriched with organic material if possible. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and set the plant in, filling the hole with soil and firming it around the root ball. Water thoroughly after planting and add a layer of mulch to help retain moisture. Make sure to space multiple plants at least 5-6 feet apart to allow for growth.

Ensure the Needlepoint Holly receives consistent watering, especially during the first growing season, while also making sure the plant gets full sun to partial shade for best results. Too much shade can reduce berry production.
