Product Overview

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.
  • Includes 1 Dwarf Yaupon Schillings Dwarf in a 2.5 qt. grower pot
  • 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
  • Versatile, easily maintained shrub tolerates drought and salt spray and rarely needs trimming
  • Performs best in full Sun to partial shade
