I planted two Winterberry bushes in the backyard today. I really need to buy some dynamite to make holes back there. I literally have to get out an ax to cut through all the roots.
Winterberries are native to Minnesota but will grow here. They want partial shade, so they should be good in our backyard. The female is a Winter Red, the male a Southern Gentleman. Apparently these two are a good pair since the Gentleman blooms late.
