Winter Bounty Holly
The "Bunch of Grapes" Holly!
The red berries are held in clusters like bunches of grapes, very abundant and attractive. Birds find them irresistible, of course, but deer tend to leave this tree alone, making it a good choice for open and woodland settings.
Winer Bounty is a cross of I. ciliospinosa x I. latifolia, bred by the renowned Dr. Elwin Orton. Expect it to reach 14 feet tall and about 6 feet wide after a decade's growth in part shade. It is a good choice for an understory planting, and also fares well as a perimeter planting, part of the foundation, and in the rear of the shrub border.
Note: To set berries, it requires a male pollinator such as Jersey Knight to be planted nearby. Dependable and very beautiful, Winter Bounty is a must-have evergreen! Zones 6-9.
