To create a line of savannah holly trees along our back fence for privacy, how far apart should they be planted without having them grow into a full hedge. We would like them to touch as trees and block a view into our yard, but we do not want a full solid intertwined screen. Help!

Growth of any plant is largely dependent upon soil conditions on your site, climate, and care (watering, fertilizing, etc.). That said a Savannah holly grows at a moderate rate and will generally reach a size of 20 to 30 feet tall and 15 to 25 feet wide. Therefore by planting your trees about 20 feet apart and providing good care they should fill in without becoming a densely packed hedgerow.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
