The Jim Dandy Winterberry is a compact deciduous bush growing no more than 5 feet tall and wide. It is a male tree that is needed as a pollinizer for female winterberry bushes that bloom earlier in the season. Without a tree like this these plants will produce no berries, but with one they will be covered in them, making a great display in fall and winter, and perfect for the holidays. It’s an attractive bush for background planting and gardens of native plants.

  • Essential pollinizer for early-blooming female bushes
  • Attractive native tree for damper areas and by water
  • Deciduous, with glossy green leaves without spines
  • Compact, for middle of beds and small gardens
  • Reliably hardy in almost every zone across the country

The Jim Dandy Winterberry grows across the whole country, and its especially valuable in cooler zones. It grows in all but very dry soils, thriving in difficult wet ground where many other plants won’t grow. It doesn’t normally suffer from pests or diseases and needs no special care or fancy pruning. When planting as a pollinizer, allow one bush for every 5 to 10 female bushes, planting nearby or among them.
