We bought this little potted English Holly (Ilex Aquifolium) at Aldi, and kept her indoors as a Christmas decoration. By the time I took her outside, she'd obviously decided it was May. We'll bring her in when the temps get much befow freezing, give her some time to acclimate before planting her permanently next fall.
There are a couple of impressive mature native holly trees (Ilex opaca) growing in our yard. More about them, next time.
