Ilex - Holly, Christmas Holly

Young holly plants are sold as potted plants during the Christmas season. They lose leaves rapidly due to low humidity found in most homes. The ilex are true holly plants and may be planted outside in spring. Some of the hollies will not survive Michigan winters. A holly-like plant called osmanthus is sold during the Christmas season and can be grown as a house plant. To keep hollies alive until spring, give them cool temperatures and bright light.
