brown berries on blue princess holly bush
My Blue Princess holly, planted late last summer, has brownish colored berries instead of red berries. Any ideas?

From my research the Princess Blue Holly berries generally start a bright red but will turn brown to almost black...but generally this will happen during the winter.
If the Holly appears healthy I would not be concerned over the color of the berries.
Holly berries can be reds, burgundy's, browns, blacks and rarely yellow and green.
