From Anthony:

The native hollies, genus Ilex, are some of the best native shrubs for attracting pollinators and birds to your yard. They provide cover, blooms and berries that a wide range of songbirds, native bees and wasps will take advantage of. In addition, the native hollies are the host plant for the Henry’s Elfin butterfly and several other species. The hollies also add great winter interest to a yard or garden with their showy berries – some species spectacularly so! In this video I cover native holly species that are sure to make your native garden beautiful, and full of birds, for all 12 months of the year.
