Red Sprite Winterberry Holly - #3

$46.99

Ilex verticillata 'Red Sprite'

There's so much to say about this superb dwarf Winterberry, a must-have selection and certain seller at the garden center or to your landscape customers. Indigenous and care-free, this compact female is a real berry factory. Huge red berries up to ½" in diameter nearly obscure the dense, compact branching all winter long providing food for over 40 species of birds! Perfect for summer or winter interest anywhere, 'Red Sprite' also thrives in wet, acidic soil. Plant in full to part sun, and be sure to provide a preferred male like 'Jim Dandy' for pollination. Its a dream of a plant for using as grouped border planting or for using singly and admiring the remarkable show of berry color!
