Nellie R. Stevens Holly is a popular evergreen holly cultivar that is widely used in landscaping. It is a hybrid between the English holly (Ilex aquifolium) and the Chinese holly (Ilex cornuta). This holly variety is known for its dense, pyramidal growth habit and its ability to reach a height of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) with a spread of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters).

Nellie R. Stevens Holly has glossy, dark green leaves with spiny margins, which provide a classic holly appearance. Female plants produce bright red berries in the winter, which add a festive touch to the landscape. It is important to note that Nellie R. Stevens Holly is dioecious, meaning that it requires both male and female plants for the female plants to produce berries.

This holly variety is known for its tolerance to a wide range of soil conditions and its ability to withstand heat, drought, and urban pollution. It is often used as a hedge, screen, or specimen plant in residential and commercial landscapes
