The Southern Gentleman Winterberry is a medium-sized deciduous shrub reaching around 6 feet tall and wide. It is an essential pollinizer for female Winterberry bushes (for example, the Berry Heavy® Winterberry). Without a pollinizer those plants will not carry berries, but with one, berries will be packed all along the stems, making a beautiful fall and winter display. This bush is also an attractive background plant for beds, and a native plant for natural and wild gardens.

  • Essential pollinizer for female winterberry bushes
  • Attractive deciduous shrub for semi-shaded areas
  • Grows well in damp soil and around water
  • Native plant for natural gardens
  • Very winter-hardy throughout zone 3

The Southern Gentleman Winterberry grows well throughout the country, from zone 3 to zone 9, and it’s an excellent choice for colder zones. It grows in most garden soils, except for very dry ones, and it thrives in those difficult wet areas that can be hard to fill with suitable plants. It has no noticeable pests or diseases and needs no special care of pruning. For use as a pollinizer for female winterberry varieties, allow 1 bush for every 5 female bushes, and plant among them, or nearby.
