English holly is a broad-leaf evergreen species that is native to western and southern Europe, northwest Africa, and southwest Asia, including the UK (exclusive of northern Scotland) (Wikipedia 2013, Kew 2013). Kew reports it as one of the 'few native evergreen trees in Britain'. In BC, English holly is grown on holly farms on Vancouver Island and is commonly found in gardens.
