Greetings to all!
I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to grow a weeping yaupon holly in a
large container. Since they grow rather large (>20 feet high), would the
container help to curb the high growth? I live in Zone 6A and would love to
have one of these trees, but see that most sites list them as hardy to Zone
7. I have a heated greenhouse where it could placed in the Winter. Any
info would be appreciated.
In my experience plants in containers are prone to be over watered. Yaupons do
not like a lot of water. All you can do is try and see what happens. If you
keep the roots pruned and treat it like a large bonsai, it may work for you.
Tell me, I've never heard of a weeping yaupon. Do you have an exact botanical
name? I live in zone 8b and have many yaupons of all types in our gardens.
The scientifc name is Ilex vomitoria f. pendula. Here's a link to a pic
Thanks for the info!!!
