Holly is a classic expression of traditional holiday decorating and we strive to make sure each product we produce will be appreciated for the natural beauty. A vase of fresh holly adds a beautiful touch to holiday decorating.

Holly is an evergreen, but like any cut foliage, will eventually become dry. We suggest that you keep your cut holly in a cool place, not exposed to intense heat or cold.
Cut holly will last considerably longer if the stems are placed in water, similar to cut flowers. Add fresh water immediately. Add fresh water several times weekly.
Wreaths and are usually hung outdoors. In warm and dry climates, or if hung inside, misting the leaves daily will prolong their freshness.
Avoid placing any holly arrangement in direct sunlight or in any area of direct heat.
Do not allow cut holly to freeze.
