Pruning is generally not needed, but can be trimmed in late winter. Leave flowers intact for fruit production. This is a female plant that needs pollination by a male plant to produce fruit; Little Goblin® Guy is the preferred pollinator.
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. Little Goblin® Orange is an extremely precocious (fruits at a young age) winterberry with abundant, bright orange berries on a waist-high plant. Its dwarf, compact habit is ideal for residential landscapes. Use Little Goblin® Guy as a pollinator.
