(Winterberry Holly) You can't have a Mrs. without a Mr.! And here is the Mr. we have for you, MR. POPPINS® Ilex means berries poppin everywhere! If you desire berries for color in your winter landscape, but don't have room for traditional Hollies, then we suggest giving MR. POPPINS® & BERRY POPPINS® a try. They are compact varieties standing 3-4 foot tall and wide, staying very tidy for the smaller garden. MR. POPPINS® is the male pollinator for BERRY POPPINS® or any PROVEN WINNERS® Winterberry holly. This busy fellow will pollinate 5-7 female plants and will need to be planted within 50 feet of the ladies to assure adequate fruit set. Berries will not develop on MR. POPPINS® so be sure to purchase BERRY POPPINS® or another variety of PROVEN WINNERS® Winterberry holly for colorful berry production. Ilex grows best in a full sun to part shade location and can tolerate wet soils. A PROVEN WINNERS® COLORCHOICE® Flowering Shrub.
