    I am sorry, I am old and 1/2 blind. Yes, probably a holly but I cannot see the leaves well enough to ID what kind it is. Have a larger pic?

    No thats the only one I have. I didn't even think I'd need a pic to ID it. I thought it would come to me. A Burford has 3 points anyway.

    I can't find a reference to Suffruticosa that looks like that.
