During last Summer I liberated 4 nice, large Holly plants from a lot where a bar had once been. The entire location has fallen into dis-repair and these hollies were going to be bulldozed if not removed.
They transplanted beautifully and grew nicely for me for the remainder of the Summer and into the Fall.
I'm worried now because since the cooler weather has moved into our area many of the leaves are turning red. They're not falling.....but just turning.
The variety I have are the very tiny leaved Holly. I believe they are the Helleri seen here: https://www.hort.uconn.edu/plants/i/ilecre/ilecre1.html
if you scroll down a bit on the left menu. I can't seem to find any literature that says some Holly turns color in the Fall and so I'm a bit worried.
All 4 of the plants started turning at the same time and seem healthy in every other respect.
If anyone has some experience with Ilex in general or better yet Helleri in particular I'd appreciate some feedback.
