Winter Gold Winterberry Holly is a North American native shrub that produces golden-orange berries in the fall. It is important to note that for berry production this female plant needs to be planted with a late flowering male pollinator. A great male winterberry planting option would be a Southern Gentleman Holly.

The leaves of this winterberry holly change from green to a golden-yellow in the fall before falling off to reveal the gorgeous pink orange berries. As time progresses the orange tones fade and reveal sweet orange yellow berries, making it the ideal winter interest planting. As an added bonus, these deciduous shrubs' branches can be cut and brought into the home and used as decorations for the holidays.

Botanically referred to as 'Ilex Verticillata Winter Gold,' the Winter Gold Hollies enjoy conditions of full sun and acidic soils. Plant your Winter Gold plants in early spring to enjoy late bloom times in early summer. This multi-stemmed shrub can grow up to 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide if not pruned. Perfect in average garden soil but tolerates wet soils with no concerns.

Most commonly these fruiting shrubs are used in shrub borders, hedge plantings and rain gardens.
