Product Description

Amazing when it snows, as these winterberry bushes produce brilliant, colorful berries through the winter months. To ensure color, a male pollinator should be planted near a female winterberry. To make sure you get berries, we're sending you both. An easy asset because our Winter Red Winterberry is such a low-maintenance shrub, even in areas that have proven difficult. Deer rarely bother it, but bees will be happy to help pollinate the blooms. Ilex verticillata 'Winter Red' and Ilex verticillata 'Southern Gentleman'

Questions about Winter Red Winterberry Holly

When is the best time to plant Winterberry Bushes?

Winterberry can be planted in either spring or fall. Keep in mind that a mature plant will produce more berries than a younger plant, so you may have better yield on a spring-planted winterberry than a fall-planted one in the first year. However, you'll really see a nice crop of berries on this shrub in its second year, and the yields will get bigger and better as time passes.

Where should I plant a Winter Red Winterberry?

With a hardy nature and ability to grow even in difficult areas, Winter Red Winterberry will thrive in most gardens in Zones 3-9. These shrubs can handle tough soil conditions, including rocky soil or locations low in nutrients, and they reward you with cheerful red berries perfect for arranging. While winterberries prefer moist, rich soil, they are heat and drought tolerant.

While it can handle a variety of soil types, red winterberry requires sunlight, even in winter. Winterberry will thrive in any full sun or partial shade spot of your garden that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sun per day. Adequate sunlight is needed for those gorgeous red berries to brighten to their full potential.

Why do Winterberry Shrubs have male and female variants?

Winterberry shrubs have female and male plants to produce berries. The Winter Red Winterberry is considered a female plant and needs a male pollinator in order to produce berries. To make it easy, we include a male pollinator plant in this shipment-this plant, Southern Gentleman Winterberry, is smaller and has the same lovely green foliage. Just pair the two shrubs in the landscape, planting them relatively near one another. While the male winterberry produces small white flowers, it does not produce red berries.
