Ilex amelanchier, the swamp holly or sarvis holly, is a rare species of holly from the southeastern United States. It is a close relative of mountain holly (Ilex mucronata) which used to be placed in a monotypic genus Nemopanthus. Ilex amelanchier grows near water, for example on streambanks.
The dull red drupes appear in October to November, and may persist until the following spring.
