We get this call a lot in the springtime . . . “My hollies are yellowing and losing a lot of leaves. Are they dying?”

And the correct answer is, not usually. Many of our ornamental hollies are evergreen, and as new growth develops in the springtime the older foliage yellows and falls off. This older growth is almost always on the interior of the plant and is part of the natural process of plant expansion.
