Ilex vomitoria 'Schellings Dwarf'

Dwarf Yaupon Holly, Yaupon Holly

Used to decorate many a home in winter, these are perhaps the most popular of all ornamental berry plants. Their showy berries often last for several months and attract birds. Most compact and fruitful in sun, Hollies will tolerate shade. On many Hollies, fruit is produced on female plants and pollen on male plants. To ensure plentiful fruit, plant both sexes near each other. They range from 1-foot dwarves to 50-foot trees. Useful as a hedge, barrier or background plant. Bugs can cause problems, but diseases are rare.
