Special Attributes

Schillings Dwarf Yaupon Holly is a handsome evergreen mounding shrub that is perfect for home foundation plantings. It grows to about 3-4 feet in height with a spread of about 4-5 feet though can be sheared to maintain a smaller size. Exceptionally hardy and long-lived. One of the best choices for home foundation plantings.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Its dense and mounding form 3-4 feet in height and 3-5 feet wide (depending on pruning), and the fact that it responds very well to shearing, makes the Schillings Dwarf Yaupon one of the best evergreen shrubs for use in home foundation plantings. The shrub can be kept to about half its mature size with regular pruning or shearing. It can also be useful as an underplanting for mid-size trees such as Crape Myrtle and Japanese Maples, in groupings or mass plantings, or as a low-growing natural to formal hedge.

Spacing Recommendations:  3' for solid hedges;  7' or more for space between plants when left unpruned

Cultural Preferences

Schillings Dwarf Yaupon is exceptionally easy to grow in most any average, 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 a low, mounding evergreen shrub to plant, yaupon holly might just be your choice. Dwarf yaupon hollies require no pruning however respond very well to shearing for formal hedges and various interesting geometrical shapes.
