Planting the Liberty Holly in Tennessee is a smart choice for an evergreen. It is a favorite of ours because of it’s beautiful shape, shiny dark green leaves, and easy care. It adds great winter interest to the garden, the birds love the berries and I love it for decorating at Christmas! One caution though, the bees love it too. It’s usually honeybees that aren’t aggressive so I don’t mind sharing.
Give it a try…you’ll love it!
