Red Sprite Winterberry is a more compact plant than its other Winterberry relatives. Growing to heights of 3 to 5 feet allow this winterberry to fit into smaller gardens where other varieties may be too large. 

Red Sprite Winterberry will produce bright red berries in the fall when planted near 'Jim Dandy Winterberry' or Mr. Poppins™ Winterberry. Red Sprite Winterberry branches may be cut for holiday arrangements and the berries will remain attached to the stem for weeks indoors. 

Plant Red Sprite in front of taller evergreens. The taller plants will act as a backdrop and allow the plump red berries to stand out against the dark backdrop.
