The Skinny on the Holly

Pardon me for my lack of postings, but sometimes life has a way of taking every bit of free time. Over the past couple of months, I realized two things. One of which involves my love of gardening and the other is a slight obsession of having the flyest house on the street. I've dedicated hours of locating the just right plant to carry home with me and now I can finally step back and relax. Being that most of the plants we planted are perennials, in another three years I will have one of those bountiful cottage gardens one sees in the English countryside.

However, I still have a some plants I'm spying for acquisition, which includes black eyed susans, cosmos, daisies, and two sky pencil holly shrubs. Now if you've never seen the sky pencil holly shrub, I'll try my best to describe it for you. It's like Diana Ross's wig for the garden. It has all of the drama. It also has a way of anchoring the landscape without being too obtrusive. It's perfect for both ends of a garden or on either side of a door. Even better, it has white blossoms during the spring and festive red berries during the winter months. A great addition for structure and interest all year round. If you already have one in your garden, drop me a line and let me know how its faring.
