    I love my newly planted hollies and it is a relief to know that I won’t lose them because of the next heavy freeze.

    I got a holly bush for my apt. balcony last year, and it didn't do well. This year, I got the dwarf burford holly and it's thriving so far! I'm looking forward to seeing the berries ripen.
