Shadow’s Female Yaupon Holly is a broad pyramidal native with scalloped deep grey-green leaves.  If pollinated, the clusters of small fragrant flowers give way to a large cluster of translucent bright red berries that can persist well into winter.  Best planted in moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Hollies are dioecious and need both male and female plants to produce fruit.
