'Sky Pencil', a unique form of Japanese holly that makes a living exclamation point in the landscape! The strongly fastigiate, pencil-thin growth habit and lustrous, dark evergreen leaves provide a rare, natural, vertical accent in the landscape. Even the smallest of spaces can accommodate this excellent and durable holly.
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, including urban pollution. Prefers light, moist, acidic soils with good drainage. Chlorosis (leaf yellowing) may occur in alkaline soils. Japanese hollies are dioecious (separate male and female plants). 'Sky Pencil' is an all-female cultivar which needs a male pollinator in order to produce fruit. Maintains columnar shape without pruning. May not be reliably winter hardy throughout USDA Zone 5 where it should be grown in a protected location with a winter mulch.
