Re: Another plant board bites the dust... on to hollies

Dave, mostly off topic, but are you familiar with the old Mobile location along 495? I thought I saw American hollies growing in there while driving the outer loop. Either that or the environment looks the same as where they do occur naturally. I personally think American Hollies, especially the old tall ones, are what I call perfect trees. Also, the hollies that are drought-tolerant that are supposed to be from the area, where are they actually from? The dunes of the eastern shore? I see them used a lot in commercial landscaping but they don't look like hollies to me. They look almost like tumbleweed at a glance. I've seen them for sale at a nursery some years ago and the label said that. I have a Nellie Stevens cultivar as a bonsai. It was a 6ft one that broke in half and was sold for half price.
