Winterberry – Holly

Ilex - Winterberry - Holly

Winterberry holly is a deciduous shrub native to the eastern US. Their bright red berries last throughout winter into spring. They are dioecious, meaning there needs to be a male and female plant for pollination to produce berries. Winterberries are wetland plants and need a moist soil to thrive. A balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer can be applied in spring but is not necessary.
