Holly - Castle Spire®

Ilex x meserveae 'Hachfee'

The Castle series brings compact, pyramidal forms to the world of blue holly. Their dark glossy leaves, superior vigor and branching make them an improvement over other older varieties. Narrow form is great for hedges, foundation plantings, or as a dramatic specimen. The lustrous green foliage provides season long interest. Castle Spire® is a female variety with a strongly narrow, pyramidal habit. Sets abundant fruit when pollinated by Castle Wall® holly.

Prefers moist, acidic soils. Shallow root system benefits from mulch.

Blooms on old wood; however, it's best to avoid pruning female hollies as pruning after bloom removes any developing fruit.

Plant a male pollinator within 50' to ensure pollination; one male will pollinate up to 7 females. To minimize winter damage to the evergreen foliage, provide late-season irrigation if necessary and site so that plant is protected from harsh winds and sun.
