Berried Treasure!
Masses of scarlet red berries provide a spectacular winter show. Leaves drop early resulting in a long-lasting display of abundant berries. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow. Tiny white flowers mature to clusters of show stopping red berries. A remarkable display of vivid color. A male pollinator (Mr. Poppins) is needed but a ratio of 1 male to 12 females is sufficient. Bees do the transporting, so even a distance of 50-75' will work. Road salt tolerant.
