Ilex verticillata (Fr: houx verticillé | En: winterberry holly)
Arguably our most attractive plants in winter. Those vibrant red berries are commonly seen on holiday wreaths and other winter decor. Of note, to make sure you have enough berries, make sure you plant multiples of this plant to ensure cross pollination.
The berries are loved by songbirds that spend winter in our region, while early in spring the flowers also support many bees in June and July.
