They take well to shearing, which is why some homeowners and landscapers love to shear them into a rectangular hedge or spherical shapes, for a look that is sure to add curb appeal. If you are looking for a shrub with year-round interest, the dramatic color and form of this native Yaupon Holly will deliver the goods!
