Re: Hedge Question

Well, I thought about that, but don't like the sharp leaves. I wonder if a Yaupan Holly might do the same thing? It's leaves don't have sharp edges?

I have some Holly shrubs in the front of my house (not planted by me) and the get stuck with those sharp leaves all the time when I'm gardening...OUCH.

I love hollies... Burford Holly grows good out here in Western Oklahoma.
