Why Dwarf Yaupon Holly Shrubs?
Rich evergreen foliage in a broadleaf habit meets an adaptable dwarf silhouette, making the Dwarf Yaupon Holly Shrub perfect for planting anywhere. Particularly suited for warmer climates, especially in Southern regions, Dwarf Yaupon lends itself to foundation hedging, border plantings or as a focal point specimen, especially with its modest red berries.
And it rarely has pest or disease issues, so you get good looks without the hassle. The Yaupon stands up to tough conditions and soil types because it actually contains caffeine - making it immune to harsh temperatures, pests and anything else that takes out other varieties. You’ll get the Dwarf Yaupon’s finely-textured, glossy foliage, made for year-round visual interest, in the most effortless way.

Dwarf Yaupon Holly Pollination
We carry male and female hollies at our nursery, and you will need both to produce berries on the female plant. However, hollies are hard to tell apart when they are not fruiting, and we can’t guarantee whether you will receive a male or female. For best results, we suggest planting in groups to enjoy berries on the female plants and lush greenery on both year-round.

Yaupon holly tea bush
As a wildlife forager, for years, it was time to try a yaupon holly bush (provides caffeine, in the USA) for tea/decor purposes. It’s beautiful, small, flowery, and just right for our townhome balcony, as a potted bush, for now. Let’s hope it will keep on growing for a long time? Just got to pray to the Yaupon Holly God for this.
Been planted for almost a year. Bought 12 for the HOA condo landscaping. 11 out of 12 are going fantastic. They are slow growers (as noted on their bio page here). 1 was a runt from the beginning that we were hoping would grow I to a fat cat, but sadly it didn't make it, and turned into a bundle of sticks. FGT was great about the warranty on that little guy, and made it easy on us to rectify the issue. The other 11 are beautiful and plush little guys that are clearly growing well.
