Ilex Magical Winter Jewel, Female Winterberry
One of the jewels of the winter landscape, Magical Winter Jewel Female Winterberry, Ilex verticillata, commands attention with it’s plump red berries. Huge, especially for its size, berries appear in late summer and persist through winter, until they are gobbled up by songbirds. Long strait stems are perfect in cut flower arrangements, filling your living space both inside and out with color. Great in winter or Chistmas arrangements.
This dwarf version of the Missouri native shrub only grows 3-4′ tall and wide. The bright red berries are an excellent winter food source for many native songbirds. They are also fabulous cut and used in winter arrangements.
Perfect for rain gardens, Winterberry shrubs are tolerant of a wide array of soil conditions including consistently wet soils.
Female Hollies require male counterparts like Little Goblin Guy for best berry production.
