The Dahoon holly, Ilex cassine, is a medium to small evergreen tree that can be found growing in Mesic Flatwoods and wet locations like swamps. Like most hollies, it is dioecious, producing individual plants that are either male or female. Leaves are smooth and shiny, and make an ideal hedge with attractive white flowers. The female plants produce brilliant, bright red berries in the winter, and are an important food source for migrating birds, squirrels and other small mammals.
