Per L. County Department of Public Health, masks must be worn at all times indoors and in our outdoor Butterfly Pavilion. This idea of floral origins for Hollywood is romantic.
Hollywood got its name for a much more mundane reason: someone wealthy liked the sound of it. And so the Wilcox subdivision, as Hollywood was then known, was born. A year later, on a train journey back to Ohio, Daeida Wilcox befriended a fellow wealthy traveler who just happened to own a fine estate in Illinois.
Its name was Hollywood. The story goes that Daeida was so taken with the name that upon her return to California she encouraged Harvey to apply the name to their property. These shrubs and the brilliant red berries that adorn them have been growing in Southern California for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
Before the Europeans showed up, the indigenous peoples of the area used Toyon for food, medicine, and tools. According to California Native Plants for the Garden co-authored by the Natural History Museum's director of the nature gardens, Carol Bornstein"Toyon is the only California native plant that continues to be commonly known by a Native American name. Toyon are a mid-sized shrub in the rose family and can grow up to 20 feet; ours are now standing tall at a stately 10 feet. We knew they would fill in the garden pretty quickly, and provide great cover for many birds, mammals, and insects we wanted to attract.
In early summer their showy white flowers are magnets for native pollinators, which help to produce the bright red fruits that catch our attention at this time of year. If you cut open a berry—more technically known as a pome—the inside looks a lot like the core of an apple, and birds love them.
Last year a large flock of Cedar Waxwings, Bombycilla cedrorum, descended on our mini Toyon grove. One of our gardeners noted that it only took these birds a matter of two weeks to clear out every last morsel. To Angelenos of the early s, Toyon was better known as California Holly. The shrub closely resembles another winter evergreen, European Holly, Ilex aquifolium. Both have green leathery leaves with spiky edges and bright red berries that fruit in winter, and consequently were used to adorn people's homes as yuletide decorations.
Lore has it that over-harvesting of the berries in the early s led to a California state law outlawing the gathering Toyon on public lands.
