About This Plant
Sun or shade; evergreen, with small leaves. The female plant bears red fruit in winter, putting on a spectacular show and attracting birds (and wreath-makers.) On its own yaupon grows dense and twiggy, but can be grown in a variety of sheared and topiaried forms; careful training can produce a single- or multi-trunked tree with a drooping canopy.
Non-fruiting dwarf forms are available; see dwarf yaupon holly.
Occasional shaping and light training; fruit may litter the ground.
