Berry Heavy® Winterberry Holly

Our native winterberry holly is an adaptable plant that will tolerate a variety of conditions, including clay soils, and may be used for rain gardens as well as general landscaping and cutting gardens. Berry Heavy® was selected for its abundant fruit set of bright orange-red berries. Its leaves drop earlier than other varieties for a better fruit display. Use Mr. Poppins™ as a pollinator.
