What plant is this? Is it dead?

Property manager I work for want's to know what kind of plant this is. Any ideas? It looks like it's not coming back. Any thoughts?

Well the pic is soooooo small, but it looks like some type of holly (aren't they all). What kind of temp/weather extremes y'all having? It looks crispy or really mildew ridden.

Looks like a rhodendron. Leaves could just be burned if it's been cold & windy. How are the stems?

Rhodies have green stem this time of year? He is in WA though. Mine are all covered in ice, so I can't see them!

Rhododendron with a severe case of winter injury burn is my 1st guess. Give it 'til May to see if it recovers.
