TWOFERS Challenge
December 5, 2015 - Flowers
Holly (Ilex spp.) bushes and trees are a diverse group that serve many needs within the garden, as well as making colorful holiday decorations. Their shiny, often spiny leaves and bright red berries are instantly recognizable, but you may miss their plain, small, white flowers. Although some holly plants may not have berries, they all have flowers to varying degrees.
