Holly

In the past 40 years we have found wild holly trees on our acreage that have presumably been planted by birds. We have never found a holly tree bearing berries though until last week when we found this tree just up the road from us. Good to find the source of our trees and to solve a mystery.

  1. Unfortunately, Ken, holly trees are becoming an invasive species here on the island. It was introduced, of course, by Europeans, and has gotten quite out of hand, as well as hawthorn, which I once loved. Sigh…

    • I didn’t realize holly was considered an invasive plant. The holly in our woods doesn’t really thrive – more like bonsai trees but I guess in other growing situations it can be a problem. I’m doing well this week with my posts – invasive broom and invasive holly 😉
