(Pocahontas Possumhaw, Possumhaw)

This large deciduous shrub from the southeastern United States takes center stage in fall and winter, when masses of bright berries adorn its upright gray branches. Clusters of small white flowers appear along the branches in mid-spring, not long after the bluntly toothed, shiny, medium-green leaves emerge. Male and female flowers occur on separate plants. Female plants that have a male possumhaw or male American holly (Ilex opaca) nearby produce quantities of round pea-sized berries which...

(Possumhaw, Red Cascade Possumhaw)

A superior selection of a large deciduous shrub from the southeastern United States, 'Red Cascade' takes center stage in fall and winter, bearing especially heavy crops of showy fruits. Clusters of small white female flowers appear along its gray stems in mid-spring, not long after the bluntly toothed, shiny, medium-green leaves emerge. If a male possumhaw or male American holly (Ilex opaca) is nearby to provide pollen, the flowers give rise to quantities of round pea-sized berries which...

Clusters of small white female flowers appear along its gray stems in mid-spring, not long after the bluntly toothed, shiny, medium-green leaves emerge. If a male possumhaw or male American holly (Ilex opaca) is nearby to provide pollen, the flowers give rise to quantities of...

(Lusterleaf Holly)

At first glance of the lusterleaf holly's leaves, you might think it was a miniaturized southern magnolia. Large glossy dark green leaves fill this pyramid-shaped broadleaf evergreen shrub from Japan and China. When mature, it may be better described as an upright, dense small tree.

In late spring or early summer, the tiny greenish-yellow blossoms fill the branches: male and female flowers occur on separate plants. Pollinated female shrubs bear deep, dull red berries into the winter. They persist...

(American Holly, Canary American Holly)

Offering yellow fruits rather than the customary red, this is one of the more valuable and popular cultvars of American holly (Ilex opaca), a small to medium-sized evergreen tree from the central and eastern United States. One of several named yellow-fruited selections, it was introduced in about 1939 by Dilatush Nursery of Robbinsville, New Jersey.

The attractive, spiny, evergreen leaves of 'Canary' are soft and shiny bright green when new, becoming more leathery and less lustrous in...

The attractive, spiny, evergreen leaves of 'McDonald' are soft and shiny bright green when new, becoming darker, more leathery and less lustrous in summer. Small white female flowers appear in late spring on the current year's growth. If a male American holly is nearby, the blooms are...

(Perny Holly)

Glossy evergreen leaves and bright red berries in fall and winter are among the ornamental merits of this evergreen holly from central and western China. It grows slowly into a shrub or small tree of open irregular habit.

Attractive year round, the spiny, squarish to triangular, glossy dark green leaves crowd the gray, sparsely branched stems. In mid to late spring, light yellow flowers cluster at the bases of the leaves, attracting bees for pollination. Male and female flowers occur on separate...

(Finetooth Holly)

Prized for its magnificent fruit display in fall and winter, this deciduous holly is the Asian counterpart of winterberry (Ilex verticillata). A slow-growing, medium-sized shrub of dense rounded twiggy habit, it bears numerous small white or pinkish flowers in spring. Male and female flowers occur on separate plants, with female plants requiring a male deciduous holly nearby for pollination and fruiting. The fruits are small berries which often bow the branches in their abundance. Ripening...

(Finetooth Holly)

Yellow- and red-striped berries distinguish 'Gempei' from other hollies. Prized for its magnificent fruit display in fall and winter, this slow-growing, medium-sized deciduous shrub is a cultivar of finetooth holly (Ilex serrata), the Asian analog of winterberry (I. verticillata). Of dense, twiggy, rounded habit, it bears numerous small white or pinkish female flowers in spring. Pollination by a male deciduous holly results in masses of small berries, which often bow the...

(Afterglow Winterberry, Winterberry)

Prized for its showy fruit and compact habit, 'Afterglow' lights up the winter landscape with masses of bright berries. It is one of many outstanding selections of winterberry, a densely branched deciduous holly from eastern North America.

A relatively early-blooming cultivar, 'Afterglow' bears numerous small white female flowers on new growth in late spring, about two weeks after the toothed, oval, dark green leaves emerge. If an early-flowering male winterberry (such as 'Jim Dandy') is nearby,...
