Holly Compacta

Holly Compacta


Description: Holly Compacta, like other hollies, typically has glossy, dark green leaves that are often spiny or serrated along the edges. The compact variety may have smaller leaves compared to larger holly cultivars. Some varieties may produce berries, usually red, although this can vary depending on the species and cultivar.

Size: The size of Holly Compacta can vary widely depending on the species or cultivar. However, being a compact variety, it typically grows to a smaller size compared to standard holly varieties. It may reach heights ranging from 2 to 6 feet (about 0.6 to 1.8 meters) tall and spreads of 2 to 4 feet (about 0.6 to 1.2 meters) wide at maturity.

Best Growing Zones: Holly Compacta varieties are generally adaptable to a range of climates and are suitable for growing in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9. However, the specific growing zones may vary depending on the species or cultivar. Some holly species are more cold-hardy and can tolerate lower temperatures, while others may be more suited to warmer climates.

Soil and Sun Requirements: Holly Compacta typically prefers well-drained soil with good fertility. It can tolerate a range of soil types, including loamy, sandy, or clay soils, as long as they are well-drained. Holly Compacta generally prefers full sun to partial shade, although some varieties may tolerate more shade than others.

Maintenance: Holly Compacta is relatively low-maintenance once established. It may benefit from regular pruning to maintain its compact shape and size, as well as to remove any dead or diseased branches. Hollies are generally resistant to pests and diseases, but occasional issues such as scale insects or leaf spot may occur, especially in stressed plants.
