Blue Prince Holly

Zone Amityville, NY 11701 | [email protected] added on June 3, 2016 | Answered

I have 3 Blue Prince Hollies and two of them are losing their leaves, which are green. Please help; they were installed last year and I don't know what to do for them. I live on Long Island and they have a sun exposure.
