Post #7344627

We planted a Blue Boy and a Blue Girl holly about ten years ago in the middle of our backyard as specimen shrubs. We live in the west-central mts. of Idaho and the third winter, the gophers girdled one of them so we only have one remaining, the problem being we don't know if we have the BBoy or the BGirl now. We will probably buy one of each again next spring and plant in the same vicinity as the remaining one just to insure berry production. It took a long time for it to become established (only about a1 1/2 tall for the first few years); we were beginning to think we had bought a dwarf but eventually, it took hold. The remaining blue holly has grown to about 6 ft. tall and is beautifully shaped - a lovely addition to our very bird-friendly backyard. Even though at this point we have small flowers but no berries and it does require patience, I would recommend it just for the outstanding leaves and shape. :)
