Whoa Nellie Holly

I just snapped this garden image of the amazing gold-leaf holly, Ilex ‘Whoa Nellie‘…a sport of Ilex ‘Nellie Stevens’…simply superb!  Even though we don’t usually sell shrubs, we propagate a few of these each year since I love ’em so much.

  1. Beautiful Holly, and what a wonderful name! So many plants have such “veddy veddy British” sounding names. This holly sounds 100% American!

  2. How’s the growth habit/rate compared to the parent? I’m guessing it’s a little slower, but is it any more (or less) compact?
