What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mountain Holly(Olearia ilicifolia)Mountain holly is another large evergreen shrub from New Zealand. It can reach 6 feet in height, but once again, with timely pruning in spring it can be restricted to become a step-over hedge.The gray-green leaves are narrow and spear shaped, with undulating and toothed edges that make it perfect for deterring dogs from entering your garden. If unpruned it will flower in spring with fragrant white blooms. USDA zones: 8 to 10Water requirement: Minimal, especially in winter monthsLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 6 feet tallPlanting tips: Grow it in a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun and shelter it from cold winds.
