Folsom's Weeping Yaupon Holly
Ilex vomitoria  'Folsom's Weeping'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Holly is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

An exceptionally attractive North American native, the Folsom's Weeping Yaupon Holly is a beautiful tall shrub or small tree prized for its distinctive weeping habit and loads of bright red berries in fall and winter (because it's a female). It has many uses in landscape design and does well in soggy or dry soils. It responds well to pruning so many landscapers and gardeners clip or shear it to various formal shapes, such as the "umbrella" tree form pictured above.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 10 to 30 feet tall and 6 to 12 feet wide depending on pruning, the Weeping Yaupon Holly is ideal for use as a tall specimen shrub or tree, in groupings, or in privacy screen plantings. Very effective as a corner plant or espalier (trained to grow against a wall) in tall home foundation plantings. It responds very well to pruning and shearing so lower branches can be removed to form an attractive tree and the top can be sheared to very interesting shapes ranging from "umbrella" to pyramidal. 

Spacing Recommendations:  6' for privacy screens, 15 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

A sturdy North American native, Weeping Yaupon Holly is adaptable to a wide range of cultural conditions, from well-drained to wet, acid to alkaline, and sun to part-shade. It is very tolerant of drought and sea salt, and is one of the most durable and adaptable of the small leaved evergreen Hollies for use in southern landscapes. Light pruning may be necessary to maintain shape, but unlike the species it requires less maintenance because it does not sprout from the roots.
