Dead Holly Bush

Asked April 24, 2019, 2:07 PM EDT

I have a Holly Bush that grew to be 5*5 and is 10+ years old. This winter it turned brown and is very dead now. Nothing in the area changed this last year(that I know of). Do you have any ideas why? I am hesitant to plant another in that spot, would you agree? What would you put there? Thanks for your input.

They can freeze out. It could have gotten a disease last fall and died. It could have even drowned. The the limited information that you have provided, these are my best guesses.

I would not plant back with the same species.

Hope this helps,
