Florida gardening: Florida Arbor Day 2022

Plant a tree in celebration of Arbor Day.  Consider a weeping yaupon holly, a native tree with a distinctive growth pattern.  The branches grow long and gracefully, making it a good choice for modest or limited landscapes.  It does well in a variety of conditions, and female, berry-producing individuals are attractive to wildlife.  The scientific name, Ilex vomitoria, is a reference to its use by Native Americans as a laxative.
