Ornamental Value

The name says it all! Winterberry is known for its showy red berries that persist from fall through winter. During the summer months, Winterberry serves well as a hedge or green backdrop to other summer blooming plants. As other plants are put to rest in the fall, Winterberry is preparing to take its turn as the highlight of the winter garden. As the leaves drop after a hard frost, the bright berries show themselves with cheer usually covering the branches. Birds enjoy the plump berries and a gentle snow laying over the clusters adds intensity to their color. Landscapes are not meant to be enjoyed in the summer months alone! Plant Winterberry and extend the beauty of your landscape through the year.
