Berry Poppins Ilex verticillata -
Bright winter color and red berries for using in holiday arrangements. Berry Poppins winterberry holly is a native dwarf ilex verticillata. Good for rain gardens and is deer resistant.
The Jim Dandy is a male winterberry that is used to pollinate Berry Poppins Ilex verticillata which is a female Winterberry. You'll see lots of very small flowers on the Berry Poppins Winterberry Holly which is a deciduous flowering shrub, but without a male pollinator, it will not fruit. It has attractive, dark-green, healthy foliage and makes a rounded, compact flowering shrub that grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. One Jim Dandy male Winterberry can pollinate up to 6 nearby females.
Our 2 plant Berry kit includes:
- 1 BERRY POPPINS FEMALE plant (the bright red berry producer) and
- 1 JIM DANDY MALE plant (the pollinator) to ensure best results.
Please note about size: Jim Dandy is shipped 2 1/4 inch containers. Berry Poppins Ilex is shipped in a quart size container.
You may purchase additional BERRY POPPINS Ilex shrubs separately. Plant a row or mass planting of these great berry producers for use in holiday floral arrangements or just a bright holiday display in your landscape.
