Feed the Birds!
Berry Poppins® will bedazzle with an explosion of brilliant red berries for dramatic winter color. This dwarf variety is ideal for gardeners who don’t have room for the more traditional variety. Must use Ilex Mr. Poppins® as a pollinator for berries to be produced. Mr. Poppins® and Berry Poppins® make a perfect couple. 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. Sumptuous berry clusters remain after leaves fall to delight birds and fill holiday arrangements; often lasting until early spring when returning robins gratefully consume them. Plant one male Mr. Poppins® for every ten female Berry Poppins®. Road salt tolerant.
