Berry Heavy® Winterberry Holly
Florist Quality Berry-Covered Branches
You’ve coveted those pictures in the magazines every winter, haven’t you? The ones where the designer has a vase of long branches covered in bright red holly berries sitting on the fireplace mantel. They can be expensive to order from a florist. Well, why not grow your own? The Berry Heavy Winterberry Holly (Ilex verticillata 'Spravy') is easy to grow in your own yard.
Berry Heavy is a Proven Winners selection, which is high praise in the landscape world. It is beautiful all year, with glossy green leaves and white flowers in the summer giving way to those heavy-laden berry branches in the fall and winter. Make sure that you plant another pollinator holly so that you will get the most berries possible.
Berry Heavy is a cinch to grow in your landscape. It needs a sunny or semi-sunny location, but other than that it adapts well to any soil and thrives in that wet or boggy spot in your lawn.
Plant several for a jaw-dropping show of berries on the fall and winter. Birds love the berries, so get ready for lots of feathered visitors. Bring some branches inside for holiday décor before the birds enjoy them all. The berries will dry nicely on the branches and people will envy YOUR magazine-worthy decorating.
