Dwarf Burford Holly Shrub




Dwarf Size Makes the Burford Holly More Versatile

Why Dwarf Burford Holly Shrubs?

For starters, the Dwarf Burford Holly Shrub is known for its rich evergreen foliage and classic red berries but with a twist…its adaptable size that fits in nearly anywhere. This widely-used shrub, particularly suited for warmer climates, is still dense and layered but ideal for natural hedging beneath windows, along fences and beyond. It’s a more compact version of the most popular Holly on the market.

And its slower growth merges with deer resistance for an amazing combination. Slower growth means it won’t overtake your garden and is well-suited for pairing with your other landscape favorites. Plus, even though it’s a heavy producer of large, bright red berries (and without a pollinator!), it doesn’t attract deer – only dazzling wildlife, like butterflies and birds, for an eye-catching show.


Planting & Care

1. Planting: Your Dwarf Burford Holly, like most evergreen shrubs, is highly adaptable, but it’s important to select the right location – preferably one that receives 5 to 8 hours of sunlight per day and with well-drained soil. After selecting a location, dig a hole that’s two to three times the size of your shrub’s root ball, place your shrub, then back fill the soil while tamping down the soil to avoid air pockets. After planting, water to settle your Burford’s roots.

2. Watering: Water your Dwarf Burford weekly, or more often in extreme heat. If you’re not sure when to water your shrub, simply check its surrounding soil down to about 2 or 3 inches. If the soil here is dry, water your Burford.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Dwarf Burford with a general-purpose fertilizer, before new growth begins in spring.

4. Pruning: If you want a neater appearance for your Burford, prune or shear annually in winter to shape it.
