can Nellie Stevens Holly grow in Clay soils?
I live in zone 7 and am looking for a hedge/screening plan that will grow quickly for privacy near the road. I also thought of adding grasses such as Feather Reed Grass or Switch grass and Russian Sage mingled in among the Hollies until they grew to form a hedge. thoughts?
