Dragon Lady Holly
Now this is a terrific holly - at least at my last house. I had a magnificent specimen on the property which was dense and which grew to twenty feet in height - it was subsequently cut down by the buyers in order to expose stonework on the front of the house!
I have puchased a couple of small 7 ft dragon lady hollys where I live now but both are spindly looking things - after three years of growth. Do these things have to be vigorously pruned in order to get a dense form? Or do I just have lemons this time around? Maybe the difference is the amount of light they get - the dense one mentioned above was in full sun all afternoon - and I never pruned it either.
