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 clone is a tall female clone with quite pendulous branches. It is a popular accent plant in the South but hard to find in small sizes. First found in Folsom, LA in 1952 by J.A. Foret and named by the late, great plantsman, nurseryman, and gentleman, Tom Dodd, Jr. of Semmes, Alabama.
