WEAKLEY FLORA

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Ilex amelanchier
COMMON NAME: Sarvis Holly
SYNONYMY: [= C, F, G, GW, K2, RAB, S, WH3, Y, Z]
PHENOLOGY: Apr-May; Oct-Nov (-Apr).
HABITAT: Banks of blackwater creeks and rivers, clay-based Carolina bays.
COMMENTS: A Southeastern Coastal Plain endemic: se. NC south to the FL Panhandle and west to se. LA (reports from se. VA appear to be based on confusion of material).
