    Collected Yaupon

    Not sure how many of us grow Yaupon, but I think they're really great - small leaves, twiggy habit, and bud back well from old wood. They like it hot - there is an abundance of collectible material all over. The biggest challenge with collecting them is that they tend to grow stick straight...
