Another contribution of Fall colors. This splash of red caught my eye and I’m interested in learning about more about the plant. A Google image search finds that this is a Yaupon Holly plant. I assume the Holly plant is branching up into an Oak tree and that this large tree will not be completely covered in red.

In the past I have always thought of Holly plants as small bushes which might reach six feet in height.

Anyone with knowledge on this please leave a comment.

Following is an article about the Yaupon (Ilex vomitoria) Holly plant. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Holly found on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.
