Will holly bushes lose some of their leaves during the winter and do they grow new leaves in the spring?

Hollies usually lose some of the interior leaves in late winter, but the plant should not look defoliated in any way and the leaves should not be brown or gray. A plant suffering from drying out and possibly winter damage might die back some from the tips of the branches. If the damage is not too severe the plant should recover.
