Winterberry Holly and Magnolia

I just finished taking down decorations we did for a charity event and thought I would share some of the pictures from what we did.  There is nothing for an event this time of year that works better than Winterberry Holly (Ilex verticilata ‘Winterberry’).  That bold color is so effective and useful.  I have used it in wreaths and every other way you can imagine.

  1. For many generations the family, their garden at Woburn abbey, gardeners, were renowned for their contributions to gardening taste and horticulture. Garden Landscaping

  2. I would like to plant some ilex in my garden. Do you find the variety “Winterberry ” the best?

    • I have found it to be the heaviest and most consistent fruiter for me. There are other cultivars with larger fruit but not as much of it. You will need an Ilex verticillata ‘Southern Gentleman’ for the polinator.
