Replacement for Blue Princess Holly - Knowledgebase Question

Lexington, KY
Question by fournierfam

Blue Princess Holly was recommended for my front foundation plantings. It's too big and I don't care for the look of it. What else can I use? It has SSE exposure in full sun zone 6 and I'd like an evergreen shrub between 5 and 6 feet tall with a conical form.
Thank you.

How about HOLMSTRUP EASTERN ARBORVITAE (Thuja occidentalis 'Holmstrup')? It is a densely branched narrow conical evergreen with a neat, formal appearance. It makes an effective landscape accent, windbreak or screen and its rich green foliage is quite attractive. It grows best in full sun and grows 5 to 7 feet tall, 2 to 3 feet wide, sometimes larger with age.
