The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).

Uses Notes:

Because only one male plant is needed for fruit on up to 5 females, you can hide away this less showy plant in a less conspicuous part of your landscape, as long as it is within about 50' of the female plants.

Maintenance Notes: 

One male plant will pollinate up to 5 female plants; plant within 50' of one another to assure good pollination. Please see our Ultimate Guide to Winterberry Holly for more information.

Adaptable to wet soils, does well in light and heavy soils. First class pick for planting in saturated areas. 

It is best to avoid pruning winterberry hollies - pruning at any time of the year will impact the number of flowers and the quantity of fruit that the plant sets. Little pruning should be required, though very old branches can be removed in early spring if they are no longer producing vigorous growth.
