Homosassa River Garden Club to Give Away Free Trees
January 22 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
The Homosassa River Garden Club will celebrate Florida Arbor Day on January 22, by giving away 200 Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria) seedlings. The giveaway will be held on Saturday, January 22, from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, or until all trees are given away.
There are two locations: The Sugarmill Woods Publix, at the corner of US 19 and 98 and the Homosassa Walmart, US 19 and Cardinal Street. Yaupon Hollies are a small leaved evergreen holly native to Florida. They produce a berry, which may be red, orange or yellow, and the birds will feed on them for months. These trees can grow between 15 to 25 feet tall and about as wide. Once mature the tree takes on a vase like shape.
They are drought and salt tolerant and prefer full or partial sun. They can be planted in a wide array of soils. Once established they only need occasional watering and fertilizer. For further information, please contact Athena Phillips at (813) 675-4091.
