Black Holly

Anonymous added on June 17, 2015 | Answered

I have a holly leaf that is no longer the black stem. If it is not dried can it spring up somewhere? Not that it may be because I got him two years ago and the growth has never been good, but this spring I transplanted and put it where it gets more shade to see if it improved but I think it has gotten worse. Can it be Phytophthora or something else? Do you have any solutions?
