Holly was named Ilex after a prickly leaf European oak, Quercus ilex. Holly and oaks were both sacred plants to the ancient Celts who honored holly for retaining its foliage through winter. It was believed that the spirits of vegetation were strongest in evergreen plants and therefore brought into homes for winter blessings from nature.
