The dark green color and bright white flowers during the spring and summer make it stand out in your landscape. These leaves will turn yellow during the fall months.The Possumhaw Holly Tree is a small, deciduous tree that offers both pleasing blossoms and ornate berries. The tree features pale gray bark, green leaves, white flowers and red berries. In the spring, the tree forms smooth, shiny dark green leaves reminiscent of the traditional holly bush that we think of around Christmas time. In late spring, the tree blossoms with clusters of tiny, delicate white flowers with yellow centers. The leaves of this tree will turn yellow or light brown in the fall and drop off. This is also when the berries begin to show off. Vibrantly orange or red berries, which began production in the summer, reach their height of color in fall and winter, making this tree a beautiful addition to your winter garden. The crown of the tree is usually rounded. Trees will form a dense thicket as they mature, making the Possumhaw Holly a beautiful hedgerow to surround a yard or garden.Between the white flowers in the spring and the red berries in the fall and winter, this tree is an ideal decorative addition to your garden year round.
