Southern Gentleman Holly Shrubs for Sale Online
The Southern Gentleman Winterberry is a late flowering pollinizer for female winterberries. The deciduous shrubs' dark green foliage contrasts beautifully with the plants' greenish-white flowers in the spring, but spring is only the beginning of this shrub's beauty and appeal. These male Winterberry Shrubs are slow-growing and require little maintenance to maintain their upright rounded shape.
Botanically referred to as 'Ilex verticillata,' the Southern Gentleman Winterberry plants enjoy moist to wet soil conditions and grow best in full sun to part shade. These shrubs work great in areas with poor drainage and happily tolerate placement near bodies of water like swamps, bogs and streams.
Cold hardiness is one of this plant's most loveable qualities. You can look forward to watching your Southern Gentleman shrub change with the seasons, going from green to yellow in the fall to a deep bronze in the winter season.
If planted with a female Holly, you can look forward to bright red berries in late summer to fall that will remain through to the winter.
Southern Gentleman Winterberry Hollies are ideal for use in mass plantings, shrub borders, and hedges. If you're into crafts, the sprigs of berries on these shrubs can also be plucked to create unique, eye-catching holiday arrangements your friends and family will adore!
These male pollinator Hollies pair well with the female hollies of Winter Red winterberry, Winter Gold Winterberry, and Sparkleberry Winterberry.
