USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-8b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

Growing naturally in a pyramidal form with no pruning necessary, Steeds Japanese Holly is an evergreen boxwood-like shrub clothed in small, oval shaped, dark green leaves with no points. Like all other Japanese Holly, Steeds responds very well to shearing if a more dense and formal appearance is desired. During late summer to fall Steeds produces an abundant crop of dark purple-blue berries which add winter interest in the landscape and are enjoyed by birds. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a pyramidal form 5 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide (depending on pruning), the Steeds Holly is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, to accentuate or frame entryways, or in straight or staggered rows for hedges. Excellent in the ground or in pots for an outdoor Christmas tree! A fine addition to formal gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  3 feet apart for solid hedges;  6 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Steeds Holly is easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. We suggest at least 5 hours of direct sun light per day. As with so many other types of ornamental plants, constantly soggy or wet soils can cause root rot or other harmful plant diseases. Where there is a soil drainage concern, either improve drainage or plant in raised beds to ensure proper drainage. Does not require pruning however a more dense form is achieved with one or two trimmings annually.
