Fresh Friday: Holly

hollyHollies are bright and festive landscape plants that meet many landscaping needs. Some species make great hedges, while others are best as accent trees.

Berries are an attractive feature of many hollies, but only the female plants have them. Holly berries are a great source of food for wildlife.

Holly plants have many different leaf shapes, varying from small to quite large. The growth forms also can vary from upright to weeping types.

Hollies will tolerate a wide range of light and soil conditions. They require minimal pruning, except to train the plants for special purposes or to remove diseased or dead branches.

Once your holly is happily established in your yard, use its attractive foliage in indoor arrangements or enjoy watching birds feed on the berries outside!
