Howdy everyone,

I am looking to make a home tea using the leaves of Yaupon Holly, but I don't trust myself to distinguish between wild Yaupon and Chinese privet (which is poisonous.)

I noticed a few old posts from people who had far too many Yaupon trees on their property and were trying to kill them; if that sounds like you, I'd be happy to help you clear them (or transplant them) in return for the leaves.

Let me know if you're interested.

Yaupon (and all hollies) have alternately arranged leaves. Chinese privet's leaves are opposite one another.
