Description

Winterberry Bush - Ilex verticillata is a Native Shrub

Winterberry Shrub is a native plant. This shrub provides a beautiful addition to autumn landscapes, as the bush draws a variety of animals, including birds, squirrels, rabbits, and deer, to its berry-laden branches. In landscaping, winterberry is used to create borders, as a groundcover in mass plantings, or as a specimen plant in native gardens. The bright clusters of berries are the main attraction, but hard-to-see white flowers and deep green, glossy leaves that appear in late spring or early summer. To encourage berry production, plant at least one male cultivar on the property.

Winterberry Bush is used to Create Borders and as a Ground Cover

(Ilex verticillata) is a favorite shrub native to many parts of the mid west and eastern United States and is hardy in USDA zones 3-9. The plant is deciduous, which means it loses it's leaves in late fall and is a different species than the Winter berry Holly, which is evergreen.  The plant showcases rich, glossy leaves in vibrant shades of green. Winter berry blooms with small white flowers in the late spring or early summer, which are often unnoticeable among the foliage. Once the leaves drop from the shrub in autumn, they expose the clusters of thousands of berries that last for weeks. The groupings form along the branches' full length, which brings a stunning highlight to any garden design. The abundant clusters of red or orange berries are the star of most Winter berry shrubs, which adds vibrancy to landscapes through the winter season. The berries attract an array of wildlife such as deer, birds, rabbits, and squirrels. The berries are very firm when they first appear and slowly soften up as the weeks pass, at which time birds and animals often clear the branches. In landscapes and gardens, the Winter berry can be useful in many areas, from full sun to part shade. You can plant one specimen as a single focal point, a row of plants to form a dense and colorful border or prune into a ground cover for hard-to-maintain areas. The shrub develops slowly into a rounded shape, and without pruning, it will grow as wide as it gets tall. Winter berry shrubs are extremely tough and grow well in a variety of soil conditions from loose and sandy, to compact clay soils that retain excessive moisture. The plant is naturally resistant against diseases and pests and thrives in slightly acidic soil. Garden soil that is alkaline will produce leaves that appear more yellow. Prune the Winter berry bush in winter to maintain shape. During the spring and summer, cut off suckers as they appear to prevent spreading. If you wish to use the plant as a ground cover, trim the suckers at the height of 12-18 inches to encourage lateral spread. There are several types of winter berry cultivars available at garden centers. Dwarf species remain around three feet tall, and others have a mature height between six to eight feet tall.
