Habit 

American holly, photo by Chris DemersThe American holly is a small- to medium-size tree, commonly 30-50 feet in height and 1-2 feet in diameter.  The branches are short, slender, and somewhat contorted, forming a pyramidal crown.  
 
Leaves 

Leaves are simple, alternate, and persistent.  The leaves are 2-4 inches in length, 1-2 inches wide and have a rounded or wedge-shaped base.  The leaf margins are wavy with numerous stout, stiff, sharp-pointed spines.  However, leaves with entire margins occasionally may be found.  Leaves are dull yellowish-green above and paler and more yellowish below.  Leaf petioles are short, stout, and grooved with swollen bases. 
 
Flowers 
 
This plant is dioecious.  Individual flowers are in clusters on short stalks. 
 
Fruit 
 
Fruit is a spherical, red drupe, about 1/4 inch in diameter.  It contains several 1-seeded nutlets. 
 
Twigs 

The twigs are slender, light brown, and glabrous.  The pith is small and homogeneous. 

Bark 

The bark is gray, thin, and rough, with wart-like bumps. 
 
Habitat 

The dahoon holly grows on rich, moist bottomlands, boarders of swamps, and dry but well-protected slopes.  This tree is frequently found on sandy soils near the coast.  It is distributed along the coast from Massachusetts to Florida; west to eastern Texas; north along the Mississippi valley to southern Indiana and Illinois. 
 
Use 

Holly wood is used in cabinetry and in the manufacture of wooden novelties and souvenirs.  The foliage and fruits of the American holly are commonly used for holiday decorations.
