Winterberry

  • Native
  • Bright red berries in fall and winter
  • Dense, round form
  • Deep green, lustrous foliage
  • Attracts birds
There is no better fall and early winter show than the one that this great native plant provides with its stunning array of bright red berries. Even better, Winterberry is easy to grow and tolerates most sunny or partially sunny spots, even those with moist or wet soils. Winterberry grows at a steady, moderate rate and matures into a dense round plant that provides an excellent backdrop to any native landscape with its deep green, lustrous foliage. It also is an especially good landscape plant for the American Beauties landscape as it provides outstanding cover for native birds while also providing those attractive red berries they love.
