Winterberry, or Canadian Holly is a native deciduous Holly in Nova Scotia. Like all Hollies, male and female flowers are borne on separate plants, so if you want berries, this is your guy! 'Jim Dandy' is a dwarf male form of Winterberry. Although it won't produce any fruit, its extended bloom season will insure that nearby female plants set plenty of berries. One plant is adequate to pollinate up to ten female plants.
