Possom Haw Holly, also commonly known as yaupon holly, is an evergreen shrub that is used in many landscapes

 

Possom Haw Holly– Ilex vomitoria. It is native to the southeastern portion of North America. It is a chosen shrub for landscaping because it is easy to trim and maintains an aesthetic appeal that lasts all year long. It has glossy dark green leaves that are almost oblong with toothed margins and average 2” long and 1” across. The bark is a light to medium gray. The underside of the leaf is a paler green-grey color. The glossy dark green leaves make it easier to see the hidden small white flowers that appear in April, which turn to a red berry in fall and last throughout winter. They can grow to a height of 20” tall, but the average is 15” with an 8-12 foot rounded crown spread. It makes an excellent winter focal point in the yard.

Wildlife love the Possom Haw Holly

The birds love the holly for both the berries and the shelter it provides. Although the birds love the berries, they are not an edible berry for human consumption. Berry production is seen on the female shrub and must have a male to pollinate blossoms to produce berries. It is hardy between USDA Zones 7-9 is where it grows the best and prefers full sun or partial shade and is insect and disease resistant. In the wild, it is seen growing within marshes to sandy beach dunes. It tolerates most soils and is a little more forgiving in drought spells. Harsh winds can be slowed down when planted and used for a windbreaker, especially if left to grow to full height. If planting in the northern areas, plant where it is not taking the brunt of the winds, but use as a secondary wind barrier. This will significantly reduce wind speeds.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Ilex decidua

USDA Climate Zone: Three to nine

Tree Height: Ten to fifteen feet
