Noteworthy Characteristics

Bordeaux is unique among yaupon hollies in that it produces colorful deep burgundy new growth throughout the warm season, which then matures to grey-green. It is an exceptionally tough evergreen shrub, being drought and heat tolerant but, as with all yaupon holly, it will tolerate damp soils better than many other species of holly.

Uses

It's naturally dense and mounding habit to about 4 feet in height with an equal spread, and the fact that it responds very well to shearing, makes the Bordeaux Yaupon one of the best evergreen shrubs for use in foundation plantings. The shrub can be kept to about half its mature size with regular pruning or shearing. It can also be useful as an underplanting for mid-size trees such as Crape Myrtle and Japanese Maples, or as a low-growing natural to formal hedge.
