Description

Winterberry is a deciduous holly that naturally grows along streams, ponds, and swamps. It is an upright, rounded, slow-growing shrub that can form thickets from root suckers. While the greenish flowers are small, the berries that follow on this ‘Winter Gold’ cultivar are bright orange-yellow and very showy. Tolerant of various soil types, they’re suitable for many different uses such as rain gardens and hedges. Its fruit is eaten by almost 50 species of birds, as well as small mammals.

NOTE: Both male and female plants are necessary to produce berries.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
