Dwarfing variety great for smaller spaces or planted with larger winterberries for variation. Attractive low loose rounded form. Profusions of bright red ⅜" berries stand out after the leaves fall and keep their color all winter, spectacular against the snow. A staple of the Maine landscape, providing late-spring forage for birds. Richly foliated, but open enough to display interesting branch structure. Tiny white flowers in mid-July attract pollinators. Jim Dandy male required for fruit.
Tolerates dry conditions but prefers moist or wet acidic soil, even standing water. Sun or partial shade. No serious pests. Native from Midwestern to eastern U.S. Z4. (1–3')
