Q. Can the holly bush make you make you sick?

Answer

The fruits of hollies are definitely toxic. If enough seeds (perhaps ten to twenty) are ingested the effects can be fatal. Depending on the species, the leaves of the holly can be emetic (Ilex vomitoria) or can be used to reduce fever, or even to make teas (yerba mate).
