Possumhaw



Bayou-Diversity (13 December 2020) Nature, in order to bedizen a stark winter swamp, plants possumhaw on bayou banks in 62 of 64 Louisiana parishes. Also known as deciduous holly (Ilex decidua), her fruit (only the females produce the red berries) lingers into late winter when the likes of cedar waxwings, bluebirds, and hermit thrushes, having depleted more desirable fare, finally resort to the bitter but dazzling drupes.
