Berries on Holly Bush are black, leaves are spotted (Pic)?

lucienaltaMay 7, 2014

I planted two bushes approximately three years ago and they have been through two previous winters with no problems with frost. We had a particularly hard winter this year and the berries are black and shriveled. The leaves are spotted? Have I lost my bushes? I have another picture but can't get it to post here. I will add a reply to my own message showing the second picture.

post a second pic.. by replying to your own post ...

where are you .. that frost was all you had this winter ... is that your zip code???

all the stuff down low.. looks fine ... there is no reason you will lose the plant ...

give it some time to recover.. and then you prune out the ugly stuff ...

berries dont hang on forever.. so i wouldnt even include that in the problem ...

lets see if the second pic changes any of this ...
