How to Grow and Care for Micron Holly Shrub

Micron Holly Shrub (Ilex vomitoria ‘Gremicr’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 7-9 outdoors

Sun exposure

Plant your Holly in an area with full to partial sun – at least 4 hours of sunlight daily.


Fertilization isn’t required for your Holly, but you can apply an evergreen fertilizer in the spring as needed.


For your Micron Holly, simply select a location with well-drained soil and 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After selecting your area, dig a hole that’s one and a half times the width of your shrub’s root ball. Then, place the shrub before backfilling the soil and watering to settle its roots. Mulching after planting is beneficial to preserve the holly’s moisture.


Water regularly during the first growing season, about once per week or when your evergreen’s surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down. If the soil is dry, it’s time to water. However, once the plant is established, the watering frequency may be reduced, depending on your soil’s needs.


Feed your plant in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer or an evergreen-specific fertilizer.


Prune as needed for your desired shape.
