Hollies for Nova Scotia: The neglected genus

September 16, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

David Osborn has been growing and hybridizing hollies in Shelburne County for 10 years. His breeding goals include more hardiness, more interesting leaf colour and plant form, and heat and wind tolerance. He says, “There are a surprising number of holly species that could be grown in Nova Scotia but are not. The presentation will detail what is available, with photographs and some plants in pots”. His gardening interests are eclectic from hollies to rhododendrons to rock gardens to hardy cacti to zone denial-with-monkey puzzle trees, Magnolia grandiflora, Osmanthus etc. .. “In short”, he says, “ all plants”.
