Dwarf Yaupon Holly Vs Dwarf Myrtle

What is a better shrub for our climate? The Dwarf Yaupon Holly or Dwarf Myrtle.

I can't decide if I want a retangular hedge or just rounded "mounds".

Can someone give me pros and cons of both? I've heard the Dwarf myrtle stays nice and green during the summers. What about the Holly?

RE: Dwarf Yaupon Holly Vs Dwarf Myrtle

I like both, but I do favor dwarf myrtle because it seems to get less inclined to get twiggy when trimmed. I'm not growing either in my current garden, but in my last garden I grew quite a few dwarf myrtles and really enjoyed them.

I'm curious to see if anyone has a compelling reason to favor one over the other. Whichever you pick, keep us posted on which one it is and how it does.

Happy gardening!
