About Today’s Photo:
Winterberry Holly (Ilex verticillata) is the only true holly native to New England. It prefers wetland habits, and its glossy red berries provide an important source of food for a variety of critters. There were large thickets of the holly around the beaver pond at my family’s place in Grafton.
