Castle Wall® Blue Holly

Although it is the preferred pollinator for Castle Gold™ and Castle Spire® hollies, Castle Wall™ is a handsome plant in its own right. It is a broadly columnar evergreen with lustrous dark green leaves and compact branching. It is an excellent hedge plant that can be used as you would Hicks yew.
