Winter Red Winterberry Holly Shrubs for Sale Online
In addition to providing attractive green foliage during the growing season, this beloved, low-maintenance shrub produces red berries in late summer that attract birds through the winter months.
Botanically referenced as 'Ilex Verticillata 'Winter Red,'' the Winter Red Winterberry Holly shrub can grow up to 8 feet tall but can be pruned in the early spring to keep it at a more manageable height. The plant's multi-stemmed growth habit in addition to its lustrous foliage and berry production make the Winter Red a stunning addition to any winter landscape.
Ideal conditions for the Winter Red shrub include full sun to partial shade and regular watering to maintain an evenly moist soil. In order to produce berries, a male pollinator like a Jim Dandy Winterberry Holly must be planted nearby. With the presence of a male and female winterberry, your female plant should readily produce plentiful amounts of bright red berries.
Some reasons to love this North American Native plant include its cold hardiness, as well as its tolerance to urban pollutions and road salts. Most commonly used in mass plantings, as privacy screens or as shrub borders, the Winter Red Holly is a phenomenal landscape addition.
As an added bonus, the branches of the Red Winterberry make for great additions to holiday floral arrangements.
