What should I know about having a dwarf holly bush in my yard?


Answer by  Karen54 (971)

The main thing to know about any holly bush, dwarfs included, is that you need a male and a female for them to flower.


Answer by  martshtml (300)

Ideally, you are going to want a male and female plant so they can flower. Also the soil should be slightly acidic.


Answer by  jjt (33)

You soil should be slightly acidic with good drainage. It should get at least part shade if not full sun. Remember to remove any dead or diseased branches and prune to maintain shape. Leaves with discoloration should be removed, and branches with several discolored leaves should be removed where the branch starts.

They are really easy to take care of just make sure you keep them weeded and watered until they are about half grown. After that just make sure it doesn't get a bug infestation and enjoy it.

These require little maintenance. You will need to have them in a relatively sunny area. It is best for the soil to be acidic and you will need to occasionally prune and shape the bush. If you want them to flower, you will need both male and female bushes for this.

Plant it in a sunny location that has well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Dwarf hollies rarely produce berries and most hollies are evergreen but some are deciduous.
