Amazing when it snows, as this shrub produces 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. Or, if you'd like to create a carefree hedgerow that's beautiful year-round, select our Winterberry Hedge, with three female plants and one male for pollination. An easy asset because it's 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.
