Donated in 1974 by James R. Frorer, Swarthmore Class of 1915, the Frorer Holly Collection is one of the finest in the country. It was designated a National Holly
Arboretum by the Holly Society of America. It is also one of three NAPCC (North
American Plant Collections Consortium) holdings at the Scott Arboretum. Each year the
collection, which now contains over 350 different types, is evaluated for ornamental characteristics and hardiness. Pictured below are Ilex verticillata 'Winter Gold' and an overview of the collection.
