Emerald Colonnade® holly

Ilex ‘Ruthol1’ PP #23905

This versatile shrub is ideal for use as a single specimen or in a small group planting. Planted in mass, it forms a superb hedge, screen, or windbreak. Well suited to containers and tolerant of shearing, this handsome new male evergreen holly is an ideal topiary specimen or formal accent to an entryway or a garden.

CareFollow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear to shape in winter. (Information provided by Monrovia.)
