    Design IdeasThis native Holly is among the very reliable small shrubs that maintain a neat, compact habit. Plant along foundations and fence lines, or in front of bigger flowering shrubs to cover their legs. Makes a great low-maintenance shrub for parkways, along driveway edges or in planters. May also be sheared into a rectangular hedge or spheres. Pair with female Yaupon Holly for a significant yield of berries for a bird habitat.
