One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

This is a beautiful underused holly. Fairly compact with a good shape and clean foliage, it holds its berries, nicely arranged, on purplish stalks. This plant is growing on the flood plain of the Anacostia River below the Asian Collections. We don't have data on it's source but it has been here a good many years.
