Product Details

An excellent choice for foundation plantings, hedges or lining a fence or wall, Dwarf Yaupon accents the landscape with glossy green foliage. Developing a gently spreading habit as it matures, this compact evergreen is the ideal shrub for nearly any landscape application. Its petite foliage emerges without spines in a reddish tint before maturing to a rich green shade and its tiny white blossoms open in spring. in fall, ornamental red fruits develop, adding late-season interest to the landscape. Dwarf Yaupon tolerates drought and salt spray better than most shrubs, making it ideal for dry climates and coastal areas.

  • Best grown in USDA hardiness zones 7-11, but will perform well in colder zones with proper winter protection
  • Mature size is 3 ft. to 5 ft. tall and 3 ft. to 6 ft. W but can be pruned for a tidier habit
  • Forms a dense mound of dark green foliage ideal as a low formal hedge

Answer This Question

A:  If it is truly the named 'Shillings Dwarf' cultivar then it is male. If they can't say whether male or female then it is not the named cultivar and the description should be changed.

    A:  National Plant Network can't guarantee that you will receive a female plant and doesn't sell specific gender of plant.

              The delivery process was excellent. The plant itself was awful. The soil was damp but the plant was supposed to be 2.5 gallons and it was tiny. The container was certainly the correct size, but when I pulled the plant out of the container, a good 40% of the container was loose fill that wasn't part of the root ball. Extemely disappointed!
                Plants were in terrible shape when delivered. I returned to a store and the customer service spoke limited english. I'm still not sure if I was refunded for the Burford Holly Plant that I also returned.
                    spend a the same or a bit more and get bigger plants

                      Although I have a delay in planting them (they are outside, in the pot, watered and in adequate sun), they are holding up perfectly. They came shipped perfectly and quickly. Looking forward to purchasing more as soon as I get these going.
