Comments on the butcher's broom
This little holly, also called false holly, looks strangely like holly in size, but especially in its red berries that appear in the fall and remain until the end of winter.
It is very easy to maintain and grow.
It needs a relatively cool environment and therefore adapts very well to undergrowth and shady terrain.
