Vertical Growth & Year-Round Evergreen Foliage
The Japanese Sky Pencil Holly shrub quite literally makes an exclamation mark in your landscape! Introduced in 1992 by the National Arboretum in Washington, DC.
The ilex Sky Pencil Japanese Holly features a narrow, columnar form, making it an ideal choice for garden design, small areas, or specimen plants. Its dark green foliage holds color year-round, and the small evergreen tree produces showy purple berries in the fall on female plants. Also produces dainty creamy white flowers in early spring.
The Japanese pencil trees grow great for use as a vertical accent plant, near entryways, or as a privacy screen or narrow hedge. You can also plant it in a large container for an elegant, formal appearance. The green pencil shrub maintains its columnar shape and growth habit without any pruning.
Cold Hardy Evergreen Shrub!
This Japanese holly ilex crenata sky pencil, as it is named botanically, will grow best in full sun to partial shade needed to keep the green-colored leaves. Grow this plant across the United States in the Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5-9. It is very cold hardy!

Japanese sky pencil ilex
Had purchased japanese sky pencil ilex from costco.com multiple times via perfect plants they were shipped in perfect condition ,pkged with great care. Over 20 , beautiful, all survived and growing. This was perfect privacy shrub wanted in small area that will grow tall but not over 6 ft, and low maintenace. These were my perfect plants. Will purchase more esp if from perfect plants due to quality and care given.love the year round dark green color esp in winter. Thankyou perfect plants.definitely 5 stars. Much more modern, clean looking for landscape rather than ordinary arborvitae which when older turns ****, too much maintenace. Plan to remove rest of arborvitae and replace with japanese sky pencil ilex

Hi there, Thank you so much for the review and for the purchase of our Sky Pencil Holly! Best, Shirley
About a week ago I ordered several 3 gallon sky holly plants. Today a rep from Perfect Plants called me and let me know that they heard from the grower that the plants simply weren't big enough yet to be sold as 3 gallon specimens. They offered me exchanges for different sizes, to wait until the plants had grown, or a full refund, but didn't want me to be disappointed by receiving plants that were too small. While I'm bummed not to get such a good price on the 3 gallon sizes, I appreciate that they didn't want to sell an inferior product. I can't comment, therefore on the actual plants, just on the decency of the seller.

Fine, found same items for less at a nursery in my city. The leaves are turning yellow,, I hope this is normal. I feel like its a fungus as when I brush over it with my hand, it looks like dust coming off. I love them but I hope they are okay
