Brighten Up Your Winter Garden with Berries

Holly (Ilex sp.)
With some types hardy in cold Northern U.S. climates, hollies are a staple of the evergreen garden. The hundreds of varieties offer shapes and sizes to fit any landscape with berries ranging in color from white to yellow to red. The Winterberry variety (Ilex verticillata) is an unusual holly that loses its leaves in the winter, adding some drama to the berry display.
