How much would you pay for one Bob? He mentioned on another forum how a guy was coming in and could pay $500 for just one. Are Yaupon Hollies really worth that??

I'll take some pics tonight when I get off work.
I have seen them for more on the Internet. So I really don't know how much they are worth. I have five of them and only want to keep two of them. There is this one and two others that one looks like it could be a raft style and the others are multiple trunked so could look like a forest or dig it deeper and make a raft I think.

I don't know what the market would be like for them in your area and price would be subjective, determined by what the buyer sees in the material. That being said I have dug and sold similar material for between $50 & $100.

Post some more and better photos and see what kind of response you get.
(I'd suggest shots at eye level and from several sides.)

It all depends on how perfect the nebari is.

For a large yaupon holly, it has to be really good, close to perfection. Which means that there should be no gaps without surface roots, and the angle at which it touches the soil should be near tangential. So, when taking pictures, it's very important that you uncover the WHOLE NEBARI (including the top part of the roots), otherwise the viewer has no idea how good it is.

If the quality is there, I imagine that for a 5+ inch nebari and an interesting trunk, you could ask at least $150, or more. Not sure about $500, but for a really great, monster trunk, and a 6"-7" nebari, $300-400 is imaginable. Just for comparison, a trident of the same size would be about double the price.

But if the nebari has flaws, the price would come down to earth very quickly.

P.S.: I don't think that the dwarf variety would grow to the sizes mentioned above, in a conceivable time frame. So, if it is that big, it must be the regular variety.

P.P.S.: Yaupon hollies are one of the best bonsai material that one can imagine. They are fun and very forgiving, not too many species can surpass them in any respect.

I'd also be willing to trade two of them for a JBP.

"I have seen them for more on the Internet"

That's probably due to the fact that they might be harder to get for people that live in some regions over others. Also could depend on how developed the specimen is and simply how educated the potential buyers are to worth. I've seen Ficus prestock sell on eBay for close to 2-3 time what they are worth if you were to buy them from a nursery in Florida.
