I have only American Holly on my tree list, so this has to be a new species for me (found in Groton, CT today). The leaves were painful to touch but didn't have the obvious thorns American Holly does. I have a few more pics if necessary.
What Type of Holly?
I think it's a match. Thanks VV! On the job even when you're in Der Fatherlund.
I always get so jealous when I see a nice full NRS holly. Mine were planted spring of 2013 and have had a hard couple of winters so far. Both winters ravaged them badly. This winter I decided to spray them with Wiltpruf and see how it goes. My neighbor has one and it is very scraggly and generally unkempt looking. I don't want ours to look like that. Do you think if I prune them a couple inches every so often that they will grow fuller and lush looking? Right now they mostly only have the first year leaves.
