this is a very versatile tree. u can keep it pruned like i do to 6' or let it rip to over 20'. the 'weeping' structure gives the bed nice depth and form. the other great positive is that the birds LOVE the berries ,so it feeds them through out the winter. i've gradually added plants and trees to my gardens to feed the wildlife . it's very rewarding.

This holly came with our new home. It was planted in the existing sandy soil, with about 7 hours of Florida sun per day. So far it appears to be doing very well. I have just noticed it's red berries coming in now. It's weeping appearance is very appealing. We would like to add another in a partial shade location.

My Weeping Yaupon Holly 'Pendula' is the small variety tree that can grow 8' to 15' tall, but only 4' to 6' wide with a weeping form. Seven years old and has been virtually maintenance free. Neighbors are always asking for cuttings when the branches are full of berries to place on their tables to add color around the holiday season.
