Special Attributes

Scarlet's Peak Holly is unique in that it grows in an an upright, slender column form to about 20 feet tall by 3 feet wide at maturity. Being a Yaupon Holly it has shiny, oval shaped, boxwood-like leaves with no points. "Scarlet" in the name refers to the abundant crop of bright red berries that add cool season interest in the landscape. 




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 20 feet tall (depending on pruning) and to only 2 to 3 feet wide, the Scarlet's Peak Holly is effective as a specimen for a vertical accent, in groupings, to accentuate tall entryways, to delineate a property line or as a centerpiece in a container garden. A fine addition to holly gardens.




Cultural Preferences

Being that Scarlet's Peak is a Yaupon Holly it is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained to moderately drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Yaupon hollies tolerate more moisture than other holly species which makes them a great alternative to Japanese hollies (Ilex crenata), which don't like wet feet at all. So, if you're looking for a small-leaved holly to plant in a spot that holds more moisture, Yaupon Holly is the better choice. Requires no pruning however can be topped to control height.
