Hollies

I've had hollies on the property since the house was built.  There are two huge variegated English hollies in the side-yard garden, but I've never seen the need to give them their own page on the web site.  As part of the rebuilding of the side-yard garden in 2010 after the tree fell, the landscaper put in three China Girl hollies.  These have a much darker leaf, almost bluish, and will supposedly bear a beautiful crop of red berries.  So, time for a new page!    Here they are, in the rebuilt foundation bed.

Here are the old English variegated hollies.

Though April isn't the time of year I expect to see red berries on a holly, the English variegated holly sometimes gets confused!

In early May 2011, it's become apparent that only one of the China Girl hollies survived the horrid winter.  The other two will be replaced.

Mid-March 2012 has red berries on the variegated English hollies.  The two China Girl hollies that were replaced last year are fine, but the one that survived the horrible winter last year for some strange reason died during this past incredibly mild winter.  I dunno!
