The Winter Red Winterberry is a deciduous holly bush native to North America, that grows just 6 or 8 feet tall and wide. It has oval green leaves without spines, on a twiggy bush with dense branching. All through winter it carries a very heavy crop of bright red berries, making a great display against snow. It can be grown in any garden, fitting well into woodland and natural gardens too. Cut branches for the holiday season, and brighten your winter with this easy plant.

  • Very heavy and persistent crop of bright red berries
  • Compact dense shrub for any part of the garden
  • Grows well in damp or wet soils
  • Very cold hardy to zone 3
  • Grow the Southern Gentleman Winterberry nearby for pollination

Full sun or partial shade suite the Winter Red Winterberry perfectly. It enjoys the shade along the edges of wooded areas, and grows in full sun in cooler zones. It prefers moist, acid soils, but will usually grow in most ordinary garden soils that aren’t too dry or alkaline. It is normally pest and disease free, and needs no special care or fancy trimming. Plant one male bush, like the Southern Gentleman Winterberry, with up to 10 of these trees, for the best berry crop.
