The Holly family of plants is native to New Jersey. Hollies have been dwarfed and altered to produce many varieties. Variegated hollies are just one kind. They like acidic, sandy, well drained soil and tolerate some shade. Small white flowers bloom in spring time, and some varieties form bright red berries in the fall. Variegated hollies or any of the numerous other varieties, are a great addition anywhere in your yard adding color and texture to your designs.
