Ilex verticillata ‘Red Sprite’ – Early Female Winterberry


A compact form of winterberry with very large, bright red fruits that are borne in profusion and are very persistent through the winter. Returning migrant birds often rely on the fruit for sustenance in Spring. Needs the early-flowering male cultivar ‘Jim Dandy’ for pollination and berry production, or perhaps you can rely on wild males if they grow within about 50 feet or so, some claim even 200 feet.
