Yaupon Holly is a common evergreen shrub or small tree with small leaves and red berries on female plants. It is found from southeastern Virgina to Texas. It is a popular and adaptable ornamental and there are a number of named varieties including dwarf types. Yaupon provided the caffenated "black drink" of the coastal Indians and a coffee or tea subsititute for some inhabitants of the Virginia and Carolina coastal strip. This is a very unusual narrow upright form of this versatile evergreen. It was found in east Texas by Will Fleming. It forms an exclamation mark in the landscape and is hardy to 15'. Keep it tight by pruning any errant branches. This is a great fastigiate male clone that is a good plant for a narrow space.
