|Botanical Pronunciation||EYE-leks kre-NAY-tuh|
|Average Size at Maturity||Dense, upright pyramidal shrub, slow growth to 6 to 8 ft. tall, 4 to 5 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Blooms in spring.|
|Design Ideas||Such a dense, fine textured holly is a natural for informal hedges. Create naturalistic barriers both physical and visual to partition the garden or to disguise ugly land uses. Also works well as a pseudo-windbreak to protect small outdoor living areas. Can be used as a cover up for utilities in foundation planting. Makes a good topiary form when sheared as well as a formal hedge for more rectilinear gardens.|
|Light Needs||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Soil Needs||All-Purpose Plant Food|
|Special Feature||Attractive Bark, Bird Friendly|
|Watering Needs||Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.|
Follow 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 annually to shape.
