|Ilex cassine is seldom seen in the garden, but is significant because of all the wonderful hybrids between it and Ilex opaca, the American holly. The Dahoon holly is a small evergreen tree that grows to about 20 feet tall and 10 feet wide (larger in the wild). It thrives in zones 7 to 10 and has either yellow or red berries.

Berries are vivd red globes, 7/32 to 5/16 inch diameter. Small, pyramidal, upright tree habit.
