Dwarf Burfordi Holly
Ilex cornuta  'Burfordi Nana'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Holly is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Just like it's larger cousin the Burfordi Holly, the Dwarf Burfordi Holly produces lustrous dark green foliage and LOADS of red berries in winter. But there's a big difference in size. While the Burfordi Holly can grow upwards of 20 feet in height this dwarf cousin grows only 4 to 6 feet in height with an equal spread, depending on pruning. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3 to 6 feet tall and wide (depending on pruning), the Dwarf Burfordi Holly is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, or as a natural or formal hedge in landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive evergreen tree. A fine selection for bird and wildlife gardens.

Spacing Recommendations:  3-4' for solid hedge; 8'+ for space between plant.



Cultural Preferences

The Needlepoint Holly is exceptionally easy to grow in a wide range of soils that are well-drained soil and of average fertility. grows well in full sun or part shade, however more sun brings more berries. Needlepoint will require little if any pruning, however can be pruned to form semi-formal to formal hedges, or a can be "limbed up' to form a small, attractive tree. Note that heavy pruning after spring flowering may reduces berries.
