‘Pink Icicle’ camellia buds

‘Warren’s Red’ I. decidua, another native deciduous holly,
has never had more than 4 berries until this year.

Winterberry, Ilex verticillata, is our newest deciduous holly.

Our mature female yaupon, Ilex vomitoria, a native evergreen holly,
has its heaviest berry crop ever.

Camellia flowers in December

Hollies, both evergreen and deciduous, add their color to the garden. My ‘Pink Icicle’ Camellia began blooming in November and is still budding and blooming. We’ve also added Burford hollies and female yews on the new berm for their future berries.  Enjoy!
