 Weeping Yaupon Holly is a dense upright evergreen shrub with weeping branches covered with fine spineless dark green leaves.  If pollinated, the tiny fragrant female flowers give way to scarlet 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.  Drought tolerant once established.
