Q.variegated holly bush losing its leaves

Zone 5 western Pennsylvania | ChristineR added on November 27, 2013 | Answered

My new small variegated holly bush just dropped most of its leaves (it’s November). I had just bought it and kept it indoors away from heat but near light, while I waited for decent weather to put it in the ground. Is something wrong?

It may not be happy indoors. These kinds of plants need some amount of cold in the winter to do well. If you don't want to place it outside, then you should try to find a sheltered cold place to put the plant, such as a garage.
