Japanese holly fern
Aptly named, Japanese holly fern produces fronds that do indeed resemble holly leaves with their glossy, deep green leathery appearance.
It needs moist but well-drained soil in a protected location to thrive. The plant is evergreen in warm climates, but drops its leaves or dies back to the ground in colder areas.
It also makes for a good houseplant in climates where it isn't hardy.
