Ilex amelanchier, the swamp holly or sarvis holly, is a rare  species of holly from southeastern North America. It is a close relative of mountain holly (Ilex mucronata) which formerly was placed in a monotypic genus Nemopanthus. Ilex amelanchier grows near water, for example on streambanks.
The dull red berries appear in October to November, and may persist until the following spring.
