Plant Characteristics:
Weeping Yaupon Holly will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with
a spread of 12 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore
doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for
planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal
conditions can be expected to live for approximately 25 years.
This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in
average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is
particular about its soil conditions, with a strong preference for rich,
acidic soils, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is quite intolerant
of urban pollution, therefore inner city or urban streetside plantings are
best avoided, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered
location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter
to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.
This is a selection of a native North American species.
