Ilex verticillata

Common name: Winterberry

Native plant

If you want to grow holly, this is the only hardy one. While it does not have evergreen leaves, the red berry show is spectacular in the fall and throughout winter. As our plants are not separated into males and females, plant 3-5 shrubs to ensure a good mix for fruit production. Winterberry is site specific, requiring low pH (6-6.5), good garden soil, plenty of moisture, and full sun.
