About Holly flowers
In the past, Holly flower was used by the Medieval
monks, who called this flower like this because they believed that it will keep
evil spirits away. It was also used by the Romans to decorate hallways with
garlands for them. A few later, Holly’s leaves represented the crown used by
Jesus, and the red berries represented It’s blood drops. These flowers
signified the eternal life. Today, Hollies are the favorites flowers at
Christmas. It can rarely be found in Scotland
but it’s seen in the rest of Western and Central Europe.
Holly’s red berries are poisonous and very bad for children and pets, even if
in the past, they have been used as medicines for the inducement of nausea and
vomiting. The flowers of this plant grow up in the spring season, around April
and May. The fresh leaves of Holly were also used by people to make juice of
them for treating jaundice. And in America, some species of Holly has
been used to make a drink called Yerba Mate.
