I'm hoping this introduction to American holly bushes
will cause you to be on the lookout for them in your neighbors' landscape designs this winter. American holly bush makes for a nice lawn or garden specimen, which can be set off this time of year by Christmas lawn and garden decor. There's some history behind these plants: when the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts in 1620, they saw American holly bushes. They were immediately reminded of the English holly bushes they had known back home.
