Winterberry

A wonderful shrub for winter interest is the Winterberry. Pictured here is the Red Sprite Winterberry. A shrub that reaches only 2-3 feet in height and width. The red berries hang on through the winter after the leaves have fallen and provide a wonderful contrast against the white winter snow! The winterberry – a member of the holly family – needs to have a male and female plant. At our house, we have several winterberry and they are doing great in only morning sun. There are several varieties available ranging from the smaller Red Sprite to the larger Sparkleberry which will reach 6 to 8 feet! Check out the winterberry for your yard.
