HAVE: Ilex Opaca 'Dodd's Red Creek'

I bought this ilex at Pike's in spring. It is about 3' tall. I bought it at the same time as an ilex Savannah. I've been having misgivings lately... and driving up to our house today, seeing the full-grown magnolia grandiflora on one side and the magnolia soulangiana catty-corner to it, and taking into consideration the savannah, japanese maple, some 20 rosebushes, clethra, sweetshrub, loropetalum, etc. not to mention perennials, in my appx. 30' x 50' yard in front of my one-story ranch, I had a scary image of what this would look like in 15 years.

So, would anyone like to trade for something like, perhaps, a reasonably-sized shrub?

Email me and we can talk.
Thanks, Rose.
