The Winterberry is a great plant for winter color, with its bright red berries carried on bare branches throughout the coldest months. It grows into a shrub 6 to 7 feet tall and is easily grown in any kind of soil, but it does best in moist areas and can even be grown along the banks of a stream or on the edge of a pond. In summer it has small, dark-green leaves and makes an attractive background plant, but it is when the leaves fall and the brilliant berries are seen that this plant comes into its own. It is hardy down to minus 40 degrees, so it can be grown in the coldest regions, yet it will also grow in warm areas just as easily.

  • Bright display of red berries in winter
  • Easily grown in any soil, including damp soils
  • Grows in full sun or partial shade
  • Great way to brighten your garden during the darkest months
  • Trouble-free for low-maintenance gardening

Plant the Winterberry in full-sun or partial shade anywhere in your garden. This is a great shrub for low-maintenance gardening, since it is easy to grow, is free of pests and diseases and needs no pruning or special care to become a favorite in your winter garden. Plant it with other plants that look great in winter and extend your gardening pleasure through all the seasons.
