Ilex verticillata Berry Heavy® Gold (Winterberry Holly)

This deciduous shrub sports elliptic, glossy, slightly serrated dark green leaves in late spring, along with small pale green flowers that give way to a profusion of bright gold berries in fall and winter. Ideal for use as hedging, accent planting, or as a container plant. Slow growth rate.

*This plant is a female, and needs a male, such as Ilex Mr. Poppins®, to produce its notable berries.
