This winter, we have noticed that the large, very well-established holly bushes in our backyard now have leaves that are turning a frosted color, as if they have been killed by the cold, harsh winter temperatures this year. We did not see this in past years, although last spring some leaves did turn brown and fell from the bushes until we gave them some Holly-Tone. What might be causing the leaves this winter to become "frostbitten"? Should we just wait until spring to give them Holly-Tone and will the bush then be able to recover? Do we prune the frosted leaves? (The holly bushes are planted very close to a moderately-sized Rose of Sharon tree but this has not appeared to have been a problem in the past.)
