A holly bush with acorns?
« on: October 17, 2006, 11:31:17 am »
Hi,

I am in Greece on holiday, and I've just come accross what looks exactly like a holly bush, but bearing what looks exactly like acorns. Does anyone know what this is?

Thanks,

Pris.

Hello Pris,

Your description sounds like the Holly Oak.  It is a tree that can also be pruned as a shrub.  You can find out about it here:
