Midwest Groundcovers introduces the perfect plant for the holiday season: Merry Christmas Holly®! It’s time to enjoy this seasonal treat that’s different from all the rest.
Located along the Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois, Midwest Groundcovers was established in 1969 by Peter Orum and his wife, Irma. Orum, a Danish nurseryman, immigrated to the U.S. in 1965. Over the years, the company has grown from its original five-acre site to include 90 acres in St. Charles, more than 300 acres in Glenn, Michigan, and an additional 250 acres in Virgil, Illinois.
The iconic holly plant, with its distinctive leaves and bright red berries, has a special place in cultures ancient and modern, and has been embraced as the symbol of Christmas for centuries.
