Low Rider Holly (Ilex crenata) is a small shrub that grows in a tight, round shape. It reaches no larger than 3 to 4 feet wide and high, so this little holly is ideal for featuring in containers, borders or hedges. It's an evergreen shrub, so it's also a good choice for those gardeners who love to prune and shape plants into topiary. Of course, you don't have to get that creative, and the compact bush can thrive with little attention in zones 6 through 9.

Low Rider Holly also is resistant to most pests and diseases and can tolerate either clay soil or salt in the air. The versatile shrub can perform well for nearly any landscape use. Take advantage of its salt tolerance to form a low hedge or border along a sidewalk or driveway. Use it to screen small objects or as a foundation shrub or hedge along the front of your house for year-round curb appeal.

Low Rider Holly Care

Plant Low Rider Holly in full sun or part shade, digging a hole about two times larger than its container's diameter. Water well and add soil if needed after filling the hole back up. After that, it has low-water needs. Mulch around your holly to help it retain some moisture, especially in summer heat. You can fertilize the shrub once a year in spring to help support new growth. Otherwise, just enjoy this little stunner.

Low Rider Holly Spacing

For a pretty evergreen hedge, plant several Low Rider Holly shrubs together, spacing them about 3 to 4 feet apart from each shrub's center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
