Holly of the Year 2004


The U.S. National Arboretum presents Ilex crenata 'Sky Pencil', a unique form of Japanese holly that makes a living exclamation point in the landscape! The strongly fastigiate, pencil-thin growth habit and lustrous, dark evergreen leaves provide a rare, natural, vertical accent in the landscape. Even the smallest of spaces can accommodate this excellent and durable holly.
