My dwarf Yaupon holly and dwarf Serissa 'Kyoto' are bringing some cheer during this Arctic cold snap with their snowy, star-like blossoms. Both are in a pre-bonsai stage, and I may try to work on them this coming growing season. The holly is a male, and I have no female companions for him, so no berries will follow, sadly.

Those Yaupon flowers are nice. Reminds me of the way Osmanthus flowers, but with smaller leaves. And Serissa are always nice.
I do have a dwarf Osmanthus heterophyllus that shares a window with the Yaupon. It is a dwarf cultivar with tiny leaves! Sadly, no flowers yet. I think the cultivar is 'Kaori Hime'.
