Holly

Holly (Ilex aquifolium) is an evergreen, shrub or small tree with lots of branches and glossy dark leaves.

It competes with native plants for light and can form dense thickets. It is only known in the Park from some historic plantings at the Meadowbank Homestead at Awaroa. However it has spread widely from here at about a one kilometre radius.
