The Nellie R. Stevens holly tree is named after Nellie Robinson Stevens of Maryland. In the early 1900's, Nellie R. Stevens was developed by a cross between Chinese and English Hollies on Miss Stevens Maplehurst property. Leaves stay a deep green year-round and trees typically reach 20-25 feet tall with a width of around 10 feet at maturity. The Nellie Stevens thick foliage allows the tree to be used as a wonderful privacy screen. You can look all over and find no better quality Nellie Stevens available.
