Native tree (as far as I know). I grew up in Spring, TX (between Tomball and the Woodlands), and this Yaupon grew all over the place in the deciduous woods near Spring Creek as an understory small tree/large shrub. I have one in my front yard. It makes pretty red berries in the winter. Needs no attention beyond Mother Nature as far as watering. Mine had a scale infestation when I bought this house almost 3 yrs ago, but a systemic treatment corrected the problem. Highly recommended for Houston area.
