Holly-like evergreen leaves have turned somewhat reddish
Flower buds; mainly vegetative
Unusual in that the plant has produced flower buds (as a result of recent warm temperatures no doubt) yet this is a spring blooming species; this species is more commonly seen in the park involving habitats dominated by Gambel's oak such as in the S/SW sections of the park's natural area rather than at this location.
