Why Winter Red Winterberry Hollies?

Breaking the stereotypes that suggest hollies will only flourish in the south, the Winter Red Winterberry Holly has an extremely high tolerance for freezing temperatures as well as heavy layers of ice and snow. It truly lives up to its name and not only survives, but flourishes.

Every fall, these deciduous Winter Reds develop vibrant red berries that pop against the green foliage and stay throughout the season, even after the leaves drop. They glow in the landscape, providing bursts of color in the empty winter countryside. New growth emerges dark burgundy in the spring before maturing to signature green, imparting further visual interest.

Plus, Winter Red Hollies are compact shrubs, so they’ll fit perfectly as ornamental shrubs in smaller areas. They’re perfect for accenting gardens and framing porches, or planting in a row for a dense privacy screen. And though you do need an Apollo Winterberry to pollinate your Winter Red, planting and growing are simple.

Winter Red Winterberry Holly Shrub

The shrub was very healthy when it arrived. Because of our winter weather here in NW PA, we had to wait almost two weeks to plant the shrub,along with other plants. It appears to be thriving and we can't wait to see how it looks come next winter.

Good choice

Very easy ordering on line and super fast delivery. The packaging was great and we had them dug in within a week. They are leafing out beautifully so I am excited for next year when they should berry up. The 3 gallon size is perfect for the back of my garden. I’m always looking for winter interest in zone 8/9 . If I need more plants, I will certainly look to Fast growing trees.
