Yaupon Holly Mini Bonsai 2022 Special Edition #1
Yaupon Holly is typically used as ornamental shrubs in landscaping, and bonsai enthusiasts appreciate them for their small shiny evergreen leaves, numerous red berries (on female plants) and small white spring flowers, and pale gray bark marked with white patches. Native to the southeastern United States (e.g. Florida), the caffeine-rich leaves have a long history of being brewed and used to make a wonderful fresh tea.
