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 small, shiny, oval shaped, boxwood-like leaves with no points. Wondering why the "Scarlet" in the name? It's because she produces an abundant crop of red berries which add winter interest in the landscape. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 20 feet tall (depending on pruning) and to only 2 to 3 feet wide, Scarlet's Peak Holly is effective to accentuate tall entryways, to delineate a property line, as a specimen to provide a vertical accent in the landscape, or as a centerpiece in a container garden. Can be topped to control height.

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 species of holly, making them a great alternative to Japanese hollies (Ilex crenata), which don't like wet feet at all. So, if you have a site that holds more moisture, and are looking for an evergreen shrub to plant, Yaupon Holly might just be your choice. Requires no pruning however can be topped to control height.
