Wintertime Interest- Berries

Wintertime Interest- Berries
A popular way for adding winter interest to gardens is using plants with fruits or berries  that continue throughout  winter — or at least part of the winter.  Many of the shrubs that will have berries are Hollys.  There are hundreds of varieties to choose from, some are dwarf and others are small trees.  Great for a splash of color in the dreary months.

Dwarf Burford Holly- A dense growing evergreen shrub that will grow to about 4'.  In the winter it has bright red/ orange berries. Grows to zone 6 so check your local garden centers for the best varieties for your area.

Yaupon Holly Tree- Small specimen tree that grows to about 15'.  If you want berries make sure you get the female varieties. Very hardy and drought tolerant.  Grows to Zone 7.  So best in southern states, however there are many other Hollies that grow further North so check what grows best in your area.
