Ilex verticillata, the winterberry, is a species of holly native to eastern North America in the United States and southeast Canada, from Newfoundland west to Ontario and Minnesota, and south to Alabama.

Common name: winterberry
Color: red
Bloom time: june to july
Height: 3.00 to 12.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Plant winterberry shrubs in full sun to promote vigorous fruit and flower production. Provide partial shade at midday in areas with hot, dry summers. Avoid deeply shaded areas since the shrubs will become leggy and produce fewer fruit.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Prune the winterberry in early spring every few years to control its size.
  • Cut back the entire shrub by one-third using bypass shears.
  • Cut back each branch individually rather than cutting straight across the top, which will ruin the shrub s natural growth habit.


Special Feature:
Year round interest, highlighted by the showy display of red berries in winter. Mass or group in shrub borders, foundations, native plant areas or bird gardens. Hedge. Excellent shrub for moist soils in low spots or along streams and ponds.
