Dwarf Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria)
Dwarf yaupon holly is a compact evergreen shrub that is very adaptable and low maintenance. Its growth is symmetrical and dense, and can be easily trimmed. The branches are somewhat brittle. It is often used as foundation shrub due to its compact size and evergreen nature, but it does well as an accent shrub, border shrub or planted en masse.
