MV - Ilex-verticillata-Red-Sprite 12-9-14

Today’s Special is our Red Sprite Winterberry. These are growing in 2.5 inch containers for $5.46 each.

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil in full sun to part shade. Adaptable to both light and heavy soils, but prefers moist, acidic, organic soils. Good tolerance for wet conditions (the species is native to swampy areas in Eastern North America). Winterberries are dioecious (separate male and female plants). This cultivar is a female plant and needs a male pollinator to produce the attractive red berries which are the signature of the winterberries. Generally one male winterberry (such as I. verticillata ‘Jim Dandy’ – K650) will be sufficient for pollinating 9-10 female ‘Nana’ plants. Prune to shape in early spring just before new growth begins. This female, deciduous winterberry cultivar is a large-berried, slow-growing, dwarf shrub with an upright, rounded habit. Typically grows only 2-3′ tall. Glossy medium green leaves drop in early autumn with no appreciable fall color. The whitish flowers are relatively inconspicuous. This female winterberry, as the common name suggests, produces profuse red berries which are extremely attractive in fall and winter, often persisting to early spring unless consumed by local bird populations. Often sold as Ilex verticillata ‘Red Sprite’. Zones 3 to 9.

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Wide range of soil tolerance including boggy soils. Best fruit production usually occurs in full sun. Remove root suckers to prevent colonial spread.  This red chokeberry cultivar is a deciduous shrub which typically grows slowly to 6-8′ tall and is perhaps most noted for its attractive glossy red berries and red fall foliage color. Tends to sucker somewhat like amelanchiers (serviceberries).

Clusters (corymbs) of white to pinkish, 5-petaled flowers (1/3″ in diameter) appear in spring. Flowers are followed by abundant glossy red fruits (3/8″ diameter) which appear in dense clusters along the branches. Fruits ripen in late summer and persist throughout fall and well into winter. Obovate to elliptic, glossy, dark green leaves (to 3″ long) are grayish-green beneath. Foliage turns bright red in autumn and compares favorably with burning bush (Euonymus alatus) for excellence of fall color.

Brilliantissima’ primarily differs from the species by (1) being more compact, (2) producing more lustrous foliage with superior red fall color and (3) producing larger, glossier and more abundant fruit. Common name is in reference to the tart and bitter berries which are technically edible but so astringent as to cause choking in those who try. Fruits are sometimes used to make tasty jams and jellies. Species is native to both wet and dry thickets primarily in eastern North America. Zones 4 to 9.

Super 6-Pack: Nearly Wild Rose Plants for $24.99

APP - ROSA 'NEARLY WILD' 11-28-14

Super 6-Pack: Today’s Special is our Nearly Wild Rose. Get 6 plants of this variety for $24.99.

Best grown in medium moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained garden loams in full sun to part shade. Best flowering and disease resistance generally occur in full sun, however. Water deeply and regularly (mornings are best). Avoid overhead watering. Good air circulation promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps control foliar diseases. Summer mulch helps retain moisture, keeps roots cool and discourages weeds.

Remove spent flowers to encourage rebloom. Crowns usually need winter protection in cold winter areas. Remove and destroy diseased leaves from plants, as practicable, and clean up and destroy dead leaves from the ground around the plants both during the growing season and as part of a thorough cleanup during winter (dormant season). Prune as needed in late winter to early spring. ‘Nearly Wild’ is a floribunda rose (‘Dr. W. Van Fleet’ x ‘Leuchstern’) which typically grows 2-3′ tall (less frequently to 4′) and as wide. It is a dense, shrubby plant which features clusters of mildly fragrant, single, pink roses (to 3″ diameter) with center clumps of prominent yellow stamens. Five-petaled flowers are reminiscent of some species roses hence the cultivar name. Flowers bloom continuously from May to frost. Glossy dark green foliage. Introduced by Brownwell in 1941. Zones 4 to 9.

Super 6-Pack: Tea Viburnum Plants for $24.99

Super 6-Pack:  Tea Viburnum Plants for $24.99 

Super 6-Pack: Today’s Special is our Tea Viburnum. Get 6 plants of this variety for $24.99.

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist loams, but tolerates a wide range of soils including slightly boggy ones. Prune lightly, only if needed, in fall. Pruning after flowering may be done but will eliminate some of the late summer fruit display. For best cross-pollination and subsequent fruit display, plant shrubs in groups rather than as single specimens.

Tea viburnum is noted for producing perhaps the best fall fruit display of the any of the viburnums. It is a rounded, multi-stemmed, upright-spreading, deciduous shrub that typically grows to 8-12′ tall and 5-8′ wide. Mature shrubs tend to lack foliage at the base. Small white flowers arranged in flat-topped clusters (cymes to 2″ wide) bloom in April-May. Flowers are not particularly showy. Flowers are followed by clusters of ovoid bright red berries in fall. Berry production is often so abundant as to cause the stems to arch downward from the weight. Pointed, ovate-lanceolate to ovate-oblong, slightly toothed, blue-green leaves (3-5″ long). Foliage turns purplish in fall. Leaves were once used to make tea, hence the common name. Zones 5 to 7.

Super 6-Pack of Maryland Beauty Winterberry Plants from Holly Hill Nurseries

Super 6-Pack: Today’s Special is our Maryland Beauty Winterberry. Get 6 plants of this variety for $24.99.

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Adaptable to both light and heavy soils, but prefers moist, acidic, organic loams. Good tolerance for wet conditions (the species is native to swampy areas in Eastern North America). Winterberries are dioecious (separate male and female plants). ‘Maryland Beauty’ is a female cultivar which needs a male pollinator to produce the attractive red berries which are the signature of the winterberries. Male pollinator must be a shrub whose flowers bloom at the same time (I. verticillata ‘Jim Dandy’ is recommended). One male winterberry will be sufficient for pollinating 6-10 female shrubs. Prune to shape in early spring just before new growth appears.

‘Maryland Beauty’ is a female winterberry that typically matures to 5-7′ tall and as wide. It is noted for its dense, heavy fruiting of bright red berries, with good retention of the fruit throughout winter. This is a compact, slow-growing, deciduous, multi-stemmed, suckering shrub with an upright-rounded habit. Lustrous dark green leaves (to 3″ long) turn yellow-bronze in fall. Relatively inconspicuous greenish-white flowers appear in the leaf axils in late spring. Flowers, if properly pollinated, give way to a profuse crop of bright red berries (3/8″ diameter) in fall. Showy berries will persist throughout the winter (hence the common name) and often to early spring. Berries provide considerable impact and interest to the winter landscape. Berries are a food source for birds. Zones 3 to 9.
