- Witches and wizards have long admired the festive appearance of the holly dragon. Given its preference for sleeping curled up in a circle, this docile dragon is often mistaken for a decorative winter wreath. Once, DragonVale's resident expert in magical shrubs and herbs, Andi Eyevee, mistook a pile of sleeping holly dragons for a wreath delivery. She got quite a surprise when she tried to lift the snoozing dragons into her wheelbarrow!
