UW Botanic Gardens Collection Manager, Randall Hitchin, reports the majority of the hollies transplanted in 1999 are in good or excellent condition. More than 150 plants were moved in order to make room for the new Pacific Connection Garden.

The Arboretum has one of the most diverse holly collections in the United States. The collection grows on the west side of Lake Washington Blvd just south of Boyer Ave.
