Why Apollo Winterberry Holly Shrubs?

Planted to pollinate female Winter Red Winterberries, the Apollo Winterberry Holly Shrub is essential for enjoying the classic, festive berries you've come to love. And while Apollo doesn’t produce the showy red berries, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy that timeless red winter ornamental without it.

And you only have to plant one Apollo for every six Winter Reds. Plant within 50 feet of female hollies and this Winterberry variety will pollinate six of them. It’s the muscle in this operation—doing all the work and saving you money at the same time.

Plus, it withstands cold and heat. Apollos don’t mind freezing temperatures. In fact, they can survive in -10 degrees. But it also grows without problems as far south as Florida.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

For starters, our Apollo Winterberry adapts to your environment with ease. From sandy to dry to wet soils, polluted or salty air, and shade or sun...it will continue to grow and bloom. And it does have beautiful flowers and leaves - creamy white flowers form in clusters all over this holly berry bush in late spring, and its dense foliage makes the perfect barrier.

But the best part? We've planted, grown and shipped our Apollo Winterberry Holly Shrub with absolute care. And now, you reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery without any effort on your part. No need to visit big box since you'll have a well-rooted, healthy variety shipped right to your door.

Build your own sanctuary with the help of the Apollo Holly. Order now, and we’ll ship right to your door!

Too soon to tell

But I have high hopes. Bare branches & decent size, but in ground & getting watered. Will know more when the freezes are over with. I thought this was evergreen, obviously not.

Healthy Arrival

So far my Apollo bush is doing well. I’ve experienced strong plants from FGT’s that do well in the New Mexico sun.
