The Q&A Archives: A dwarf like shruber with the word "pencil" in it.

Question: Looking for the name of a shrub with the name

Answer: I can think of "Sky Pencil" holly, Ilex crenata "Sky Pencil" (sometimes called "Sky Sentry".) This evergreen shrub grows about 6 to 8 feet tall and is very narrow, only 12 to 18 inches wide. It is considered winter hardy to zone 6.

There is also the pencil cholla, a cactus, but it would not grow in your area.

That's all I can come up with.
