This listing is for 1) Sky Pencil Holly in a 2 1/2″ pot (the tree is 6″-18″ tall)

Sky Pencil hollies are narrow, columnar shrubs that grow up to 8 feet (2.4 m.) tall and 2 feet (.6 m.) wide. With pruning, you can maintain them at a height of 6 feet (1.8 m.) and a width of just 12 inches (30 cm.). They produce small, greenish flowers and female plants produce tiny, black berries, but neither is particularly ornamental. They are grown primarily for their interesting shape. Sky Pencil holly shrubs grow well in containers. This allows you to use them as architectural plants to frame a door or entryway or on decks and patios. You don’t have to worry about coming in contact with the plant because the leaves aren’t prickly as with other types of holly shrubs. In the ground, you can use Sky Pencil holly shrubs as a hedge plant. They come in handy in places where you don’t have room for the width of bushier plants. They look well-groomed without much pruning, and you can use them in formal gardens alongside neatly sheared plants.

Sky Pencil hollies are rated for USDA plant hardiness zones 6 through 9. They adapt to full sun or partial shade. In zones 8 and 9, provide protection from harsh afternoon sun. In zone 6 it needs protection from strong winds. It grows well in any well-drained soil.
