More Information

Description Finally, a winterberry holly that works for small spaces! Berry Poppins® winterberry holly (Ilex verticillata) from Proven Winners reaches just 3-4’ tall and wide compared to the massive 10’ of wild varieties. That means that anyone can enjoy the magic of this amazing native holly and its super colorful branches in winter. Winterberry holly blooms in late spring with small white flowers. These soon develop into green berries, which aren’t very noticeable since they’re hidden among the leaves. As the cooler temperatures of autumn come along, the berries turn red. In mid-autumn, the foliage blazes bright yellow, then drops to reveal the berry-laden branches. It is spectacular! Branches of mature plants can be cut and used in arrangements and for other holiday décor. A note about winterberry holly pollination: Winterberry holly plants are either male or female, and both a male and female plant need to be present in order for fruit to form on the female. Berry Poppins is a female variety, so you will need to purchase the male variety, Mr. Poppins winterberry holly, as well. Only the female plants will develop berries, but one male will pollinate up to five females. Wondering how far apart you can plant the male and female holly plants? Anywhere within about 50’ of each other – the distance you can expect a pollinator to fly on a single foraging trip – is suitable. Details Botanical name: Ilex verticillata 'FARROWBPOP' Patent: USPP 25,835 Common name: Winterberry holly Zone: 3 - 9 Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun)) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun) Height x width: 3-4' tall and wide Flower color: White flowers develop into green, then red, berries Foliage color: Green Season of Interest: Fall-winter Uses: Hedge, native plant gardens, wildlife gardens, specimen (be sure to pair with a male plant).   How To Grow Soil: Moist but well-drained soils are best. Though winterberry holly can take some dryness, foliage will begin to brown if it dries out frequently or severely. Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part sun (4-6 hrs/day). Water: Average to abundant (as long as soil is well-drained). Space: 2-3' apart, depending on landscape role. Fertilizing: If desired, fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer. A second application may be made in late spring/early summer as well. Winterizing: 2-3" of shredded bark mulch is important to protect the shallow roots and minimize water loss. Do not allow plants to enter winter "thirsty"; dry soil during cold, windy weather is the main cause of leaf browning or even the plant dying. Maintenance: Trim as needed to maintain shape and size desired. Save major pruning for mid-late spring, after new growth has emerged but before it becomes hard and woody.

Winter accents

Grew these guys over 30 years ago, but jobs and four kids kept me out of my garden all too often. Now retired I look forward to seeing the bright winter contrast again. My berry boys from you guys have more than doubled in size in two months! Thanks for your dedication to excellent plants! 🙋‍♂️😃👍 Don Fredrickson

Berry poppins review

My berry poppins plant arrived in good shape. Started putting it outside to get it used to weather. The leaves started turning brown on edges then fell off before planting, all the leaves fell off. The stalk of plant was still nice and green, the leaves have all come back and it looks good. Just hope and pray that it will be back in the spring. Mr Poppins is doing great!!
Thank you!!!!

Plants were Quite Small and Struggling Upon Arrival

I ordered several plants from Great Garden Plants and from another company online. Great Garden Plants were definitely were smaller in comparision and appeared to be struggling initially. The plants did perk up and are slowly starting to leaf up more.
