My son mowed over one of my holly bushes, leaving about three 6" roots. I trimmed them close to the ground but only one root is bearing leaves?

They are tolerant of being cut back severely. In fact, a mature holly can generally be cut to the ground and will regrow vigorously from its roots.
Give the Holly time to recover!
