Winter Hardy
Grace Hybrid American Hollies

The dark, shiny disease resistant foliage along with the formidable branching structure and brilliant, constant fruiting make the Grace Hybrid Hollies one of the most visually attractive hollies available, however, the real values goes much deeper. Orlando S. Pride knew he needed many improvements over the native american holly of the south, to make it a consistent, iron clad, landscape choice for the northeast.

PRIORITY'S INCLUDED:

  • Strong and fibrous root systems for ease of transplanting.
  • Foliage to be resistant to disease and leaf spotting
  • Structural strength in branching to withstand heavier snow loads.
  • And last, but not least, the incredible accomplishment of cold temperature survivability.

Orlando S. Pride has been credited, by many horticulturists, for extending the northern hardiness range of American hollies by over 500 miles with his creation of Grace Hybrid Hollies. Grace Hybrid Hollies have survived undamaged, at Pride Nursery, when winters have hit temperatures of -28 degrees F., and killed other hollies at ground level. Other areas of the northeast have reported lows of -30 to -35 degrees F. without injury (See Dep. Of Agriculture National Arboretum holly listing.)

This accomplishment is why Orlando S. Pride has received such prestigious awards as Pennsylvania Nurseryman of the Year, and Distinguished Alumni of Penn State University..
