What is the shrub bush at the entrance to NYBG? It is evergreen with red berries.

it is at entrance when you come in from Metro North


I think you must be refering to the large holly shrub on the right hand side as you enter. It is a cultivated variety - Ilex altraclerensis.

P.SPlease excuse the delay in answering.
