Amanda McNulty: Alternatives to finger sticks

When I was little, Momma had us make Christmas wreaths with

Ilex cornuta

, perhaps the most prickly of all the hollies, pinning those stems to straw wreath forms. Another standard,

Eastern Red Cedar

, is also notoriously prickly. Now

Frazier fir

is all the rage but it doesn’t grow in our heat.
