Leaf Burn on Holly Bushes

Anonymous added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

I have mature holly bushes at least 14 years old on the side of my house. After snow this winter, three of them have many black leaves all over. New growth is coming up, but the old black leaves are hanging on. What might I treat this with?
