Original Message Nellie Stevens Holly
You are right that Nellie Stevens Holly is not recommended for Zone 5. Sorry that I have no other recommendations for you. But why not visit some of the nicer nurseries in your area, and speak with several experts to see what they recommend, and check that info out further in reference books. That may save you from a costly error.
Good luck.

Quoting Jean Schmidt: ------------
-I am interested in growing a Nellie Stevens Hollie, but what I've learned is that this species is not hardy in zone 5. Is this accurate; and would it be worth my effort to try; or is there another similar cultivat that is hardy in zone 5 which will be similar to the Nellie Stevens
