Shade Grade: TBD
Sky Pencil Holly
UPDATE: This was clearly going to be outcompeted and shaded by it’s neighbors, so I cut it back and planted it in a cedar planter on the lower deck. It’s placed to conveniently catch the drip irrigation overflow from the overhead hanging basket.
I felt like the north side fence plantings could use a little structure so opted for this tall skinny shrub to fill the gap between a slow growing beech and our coral bark maple. It’s pretty small so far and possibly more shaded than it would prefer (it’s a full sun plant in a part sun spot) so we’ll see how it goes!
