Hollies


I am beginning to learn that hollies (Ilex) have numerous varieties in common use. In addition to my favorite Winterberry, I love the 'Nellie Moser" variety that we have as a border on our lot. this year it produced berries whereas last year there were none. I think this is becuae of a frost in the spring 0f 2007 that nipped the flowers. I know the birds are pleased.
