The American Holly is a species of holly native to the southeastern U.S. It is a widely used landscape plant, both within and slightly beyond its native range. Although it is widely used, I think it is still under-utilized; some gardeners still plant non-native hollies, such as the English holly.
I hope this page will convince people living in the native range of this plant to plant it instead of non-native alternatives. I also provide a lot of considerations for planting this plant, that will help you to grow it most effectively if you do choose to grow it. Lastly, you'll find a few recommendations of other native holly species.
This page is oriented towards a North American audience, especially the Eastern U.S.
