Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

The Mary Nell Holly is a versatile plant that can be used as a hedge, foundation planting, or as a specimen plant in the landscape. It has a dense, compact growth habit and can reach a height of around 8 to 10 feet (2.4 to 3 meters) with a similar spread.

One of the standout features of the Mary Nell Holly is its abundant production of bright red berries, which appear in the fall and persist throughout the winter. These berries provide a beautiful contrast against the dark green foliage and are a favorite food source for birds.

In terms of care, the Mary Nell Holly prefers well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is a relatively low-maintenance plant, but regular pruning can help maintain its shape and promote healthy growth
