Be very careful when pruning Weeping Yaupon Holly Ilex vomitoria 'Pendula' or you will loose the prized look of the plant.

It needs little pruning to develop a strong structure. Weeping Yaupon Holly makes a distinct irregular, weeping form with its upright crooked trunks and slender, curved, branches with small, oval, gray-green foliage.

They can reach a height of 30-feet or more but most you see are between 15 to 20-feet with a width of 6 to 12-feet. As the tree grows older next to a sidewalk or patio, lower branches can be removed to allow room to walk under them.
