Answer: Most hollies mature to sizes that are more tree-like than would be suited for a foundation planting. Given the size of the area available, I think you would be happier with one of the socalled blue hollies such as Blue Maid or Blue Princess and the corresponding male. These hollies grow slowly and adapt well to pruning and are very winter hardy; they also fruit well. In the space available, two females would go into the planting bed and then a male could be planted elsewhere yet nearby.
